Title: Operating Undulator-based Femtoslicing at BESSY

Abstract

A source of 100 fs x-ray pulses with tunable polarization and excellent signal-to-background ratio has been constructed in 2004 at BESSY, based on laser-induced energy modulation ('femtoslicing') and subsequent angular separation of the short-pulse x-rays from an elliptical undulator. After commissioning at the BESSY II storage ring and characterizing the source, short-pulse radiation is now routinely delivered for pump-probe applications. The paper summarizes the results from commissioning and operational experience as well as possible upgrade options.
