Title: CAMP@FLASH: an end-station for imaging, electron- and ion-spectroscopy, and pump–probe experiments at the FLASH free-electron laser

Abstract

The non-monochromatic beamline BL1 at the FLASH free-electron laser facility at DESY was upgraded with new transport and focusing optics, and a new permanent end-station, CAMP, was installed. This multi-purpose instrument is optimized for electron- and ion-spectroscopy, imaging and pump–probe experiments at free-electron lasers. It can be equipped with various electron- and ion-spectrometers, along with large-area single-photon-counting pnCCD X-ray detectors, thus enabling a wide range of experiments from atomic, molecular, and cluster physics to material and energy science, chemistry and biology. Here, an overview of the layout, the beam transport and focusing capabilities, and the experimental possibilities of this new end-station are presented, as well as results from its commissioning.

Figure 1 Figure 1: Sketch of the beamline transport and focusing mirrors from the undulators to the CAMP end-station. The FEL beam passes a total of six optics from the undulators towards the end-station. Additionally, behind the three flat transport mirrors BL0M0, BL1M0 and BL1M1, and the VLS, the optional multilayer-based split-and-delaymore » unit (DESC) can be inserted into the FEL beam to create two XUV pulses for pump–probe experiments. The FEL beam is focused into the CAMP end-station by a set of two plane-elliptical Kirkpatrick–Baez (KB) mirrors with focal lengths of 810 mm (horizontal focusing) and 550 mm (vertical focusing), respectively.« less
