"Probing Molecular Dynamics from Within using FELs"

Short x-ray pulses from free electron lasers (FELs) open a new regime for all scientific research. The first x-ray FEL, the Linac Coherent Light Source (LCLS) at the SLAC National Laboratory on the Stanford campus, provides intense short pulses that allow the investigation of ultrafast non-linear and multi-photon processes, including time-resolved investigations in molecules. We will report on the femtosecond response of molecules to the ultra-intense, ultrafast x-ray radiation from FELs as well as on time-resolved investigation using x-ray pump-x-ray probe techniques.
