Title: Temporal and Spatial Shaping of X-Ray Free-Electron Lasers

Abstract

The x-ray free-elec­tron laser is the bright­est source of x-rays, with a peak bright­ness ten or­ders of mag­ni­tude higher than con­ven­tional syn­chro­tron ra­di­a­tion sources. Much like con­ven­tional lasers, XFELs are ex­tremely flex­i­ble ma­chines and the prop­er­ties of the x-rays can be con­trolled by ac­cu­rately ma­nip­u­lat­ing the las­ing medium, i.e. the elec­tron beam. In my talk I will dis­cuss past and pre­sent re­search on shap­ing the tem­po­ral prop­er­ties of the x-rays at the Linac Co­her­ent Light Source (LCLS). I will dis­cuss the two-color FEL modes and their ap­pli­ca­tions in user ex­per­i­ments. Fi­nally I will pre­sent our re­sults on laser-shap­ing of x-ray pulses and our plans for at­tosec­ond op­er­a­tion in the soft x-ray regime.
