TopicEuropean XFEL - novel tool for nanomaterials research and characterization
The European X-ray free electron laser (XFEL) is a new international research installation that is currently under construction in the Hamburg area in Germany. The world-unique feature of this free electron laser is the possibility to provide per second up to 27.000 ultra-short (10 - 100 fs), ultra-high brilliance flashes that makes this facility particular suitable for nanomaterials research and characterization. In this presentation, selected examples of experiments will be given and plans for implementation of dedicated instrumentation at the European XFEL will be described.
