Abstract

FLASH, the Free-electron LASer in Hamburg, is the world’s first free electron laser for extremely bright and ultra-short pulses in the extreme ultraviolet and soft X-ray range. Efficient photon beam transport and diagnostics play an essential role in exploiting the features of this new generation of light sources in a large variety of user experiments. A detailed overview of the FLASH user facility is presented.

Keywords

Pulse Train Photon Beam Free Electron Laser Electron Bunch Photon Pulse 
These keywords were added by machine and not by the authors. This process is experimental and the keywords may be updated as the learning algorithm improves.
