Title: The LAMP instrument at the Linac Coherent Light Source free-electron laser

Abstract

The Laser Applications in Materials Processing (LAMP) instrument is a new end-station for soft X-ray imaging, high-field physics, and ultrafast X-ray science experiments that is available to users at the Linac Coherent Light Source (LCLS) free-electron laser. While the instrument resides in the Atomic, Molecular and Optical science hutch, its components can be used at any LCLS beamline. The end-station has a modular design that provides high flexibility in order to meet user-defined experimental requirements and specifications. The ultra-high-vacuum environment supports different sample delivery systems, including pulsed and continuous atomic, molecular, and cluster jets; liquid and aerosols jets; and effusive metal vapor beams. It also houses movable, large-format, high-speed pnCCD X-ray detectors for detecting scattered and fluorescent photons. Multiple charged-particle spectrometer options are compatible with the LAMP chamber, including a double-sided spectrometer for simultaneous and even coincident measurements of electrons, ions, and photons produced by the interaction of the high-intensity X-ray beam with the various samples. Here in this paper we describe the design and capabilities of the spectrometers along with some general aspects of the LAMP chamber and show some results from the initial instrument commissioning.

FIG. 1. FIG. 1. : Schematic top view of the LAMP instrument installed at the LCLS AMO beamline. The X-ray beam, entering from the left, is focused by two KB focusing mirrors, separated from the LAMP C1 interaction chamber by a differential pumping and laser in-coupling unit. Various spectrometers and sample deliverymore » systems (a cluster jet assembly consisting of two skimmer chambers is shown here exemplary) can be attached to the four CF 250 (12′′) conflat flanges on C1, which is also equipped with several smaller flanges, to which other accessories such as beam viewing and diagnostics equipment can be connected. Scattered and fluorescent X-rays can be detected by two removable pnCCD detector planes, which can be isolated from C1 by a gate valve. The distances between the interaction region at the center of C1 and the KB focusing and laser in-coupling mirrors as well as the distances between the interaction region and the surface of the two pnCCD detectors are indicated.« less
