The theory of synchrotron radiation and of the free-electron laser, design examples and the technology basis are presented. The handbook presents advanced concepts like seeding and harmonic generation, the booming field of Terahertz radiation sources and upcoming brilliant light sources driven by laser-plasma accelerators.

The European X-Ray Free-Electron Laser Facility (European XFEL) is an X-ray research laser facility commissioned during The first laser pulses were produced in May and the facility started user operation in September The international project with twelve participating countries; nine shareholders at the time of commissioning (Denmark, France, Headquarters: Schenefeld, Germany. John C.H. Spence, in Advances in Imaging and Electron Physics, 2 The X-Ray Free-Electron Laser. The invention of the free-electron laser has a fascinating history, dating mainly from the development of traveling wave vacuum tubes .

  X-ray free electron lasers (FELs) have been proposed to be constructed both at SLAC in the form of the so-called Linac Coherent Light Source as well as at DESY, where the so-called XFEL laboratory is part of the design of the electron-positron linear collider TESLA. In addition to the immediate applications in condensed matter physics, chemistry, material . The Special Issue of the journal Applied Sciences, “X-ray free electron lasers”, aims to cover recent advances in the development of XFELs and in the applications of XFELs in the field of physics, chemistry, and biology, as well as relevant theoretical studies in the fields. Prof. Dr. Kiyoshi Ueda Guest Editor. Manuscript Submission Information. X-ray tubes soon made their way as excellent instruments for numerous applications in medicine, biology, materials science and testing, chemistry and public security. Developing new radiation sources with higher brilliance and much extended spectral range resulted in stunning developments like the electron synchrotron and electron storage ring.

Here we report the first experimental demonstration of this principle using the FLASH soft X-ray free-electron laser. An intense 25 fs, 4 10^13 W/cm^2 pulse, containing 10^12 photons at 32 nm wavelength, produced a coherent diffraction pattern from a nano-structured non-periodic object, before destroying it at 60, by: In he became head of the synchrotron radiation laboratory HASYLAB at DESY, from to he was Photon Science Research Director. In his tenure he initiated DESY’s 3rd generation synchrotron radiation facility PETRA III, the free-electron lasers FLASH and European XFEL, and the Center for Free-Electron Laser Science CFEL. The free electron laser (FEL) will be an outstanding tool for research and industrial application. This book describes the physical fundamentals on the basis of classical mechanics, electrodynamics, and the kinetic theory of charged particle beams, and will be suitable for graduate students and scientists by: This handbook presents the development of synchrotron light sources and free-electron lasers as well as new scientific applications. Hardly any other discovery of the nineteenth century had such an impact on science and technology as Wilhelm Conrad Röntgen’s seminal discovery of X-rays in the year
