Title [en]
Explosions of Clusters in Intense X-ray Pulses
Abstract [sv]
This proposal deals with the participation at the first experiments at the free-electron laser Linac Coherent Light Source (LCLS) in Stanford. In this work we will study the explosions of clusters irradiated by intense 800 eV pulses from the LCLS, with an eye toward understanding how to control and manipulate these explosions. This work is motivated by the ultimate goal of imaging single biomolecules, and will focus to a large extent on the explosion dynamics of mixed species clusters composed of both mid Z atoms and low Z atoms (such as hydrogen and deuterium). This will provide a simplified system on which fundamental processes relevant to macromolecular imaging can be measured for the first time. This work follows directly from the pioneering work performed recently on cluster explosions and coherent imaging at the Free-electron LASer in Hamburg (FLASH). Our group has been granted exclusive access to perform the first cluster experiment at LCLS, which bears the promise of a high scientific return.
