Femtosecond X-ray protein nanocrystallography
X-ray crystallography provides the vast majority of macromolecular structures, but the success of the method relies on growing crystals of sufficient size. In conventional measurements, the necessaryExpand

Ultra-efficient ionization of heavy atoms by intense X-ray free-electron laser pulses
Researchers create high ionization states, up to Xe36+, using 1.5 keV free-electron laser pulses. The higher than expected ionization may be due to transient resonance-enhanced absorption and theExpand

Generation and structure of extremely large clusters in pulsed jets.
Extremely large xenon clusters with sizes exceeding the predictions of the Hagena scaling law by several orders of magnitude are shown to be produced in pulsed gas jets. The cluster sizes areExpand

Diffractive imaging of a rotational wavepacket in nitrogen molecules with femtosecond megaelectronvolt electron pulses
Imaging changes in molecular geometries on their natural femtosecond timescale with sub-Angström spatial precision is one of the critical challenges in the chemical sciences, as the nuclear geometryExpand

X-ray-optical cross-correlator for gas-phase experiments at the Linac Coherent Light Source free-electron laser
X-ray–optical pump–probe experiments at the Linac Coherent Light Source (LCLS) have so far been limited to a time resolution of 280 fs fwhm due to timing jitter between the accelerator-basedExpand
