Birth of the X-Ray Laser and a New Era of Science
This year’s lecture will focus on the evolution of modern X-ray sources, culminating in the X-ray Free Electron Laser (XFEL). XFEL’s have unique capabilities and can probe matter at atomic length scales and on time scales characteristic for the electrons that glue the atoms together. Several examples will be given.
