Research Opportunities at LCLS September 2011 Joachim Sthr Five Revolutions in light 1879 - Invention of the light bulb 1895 - Discovery of X-Rays 1960 - Invention of the LASER 1970 - Synchrotron radiation x-rays - SSRL 2009 - The first x-ray laser - LCLS The speed of things the smaller the fast

manifestation of the physical concept of inertia = resistance to motion, action, or change macro molecules molecular groups atoms electrons & spins

Laser flash The new science paradigm: Static structure plus dynamic function Present technological speeds Las er s X-ray Lasers

Future technological speeds Important areas of LCLS research Because of their size, atoms and bonds can change fast but how do systems evolve? key areas of interest: equilibrium (phase diagrams of complex materials) close to equilibrium (operation or function of a system) far from equilibrium (transient states like a chemical reaction)

far, far from equilibrium (matter during inertial confinement fusion) Equilibrium: What is the structure of water? Small angle x-ray scattering shows inhomogeneity Disordered soup Ice like clusters Components probably dynamic form and dissolve - can we take an ultrafast snapshot??

How do we image with LCLS? Close to equilibrium how does a device function: e.g. how does a spin current turn the magnetization ? magnetic switching today in 1 ns how fast can it be done? bit in cell 100 nm Computer chip

Electronic circuit Memory cell Magnetic structure of bit Far from equilibrium: How does a chemical reaction proceed? reaction dynamics & intermediates end reaction products What are the key intermediate reactive species?

Far, far from equilibrium: Warm and hot dense matter The properties of matter in extreme states - which on earth can only be created transiently on ultrafast time scale- Sample Image before destroy snapshots femtosecond protein crystallography Atoms = electronic cores move slow enough so that image before destruction becomes possible at LCLS requirements:
