Title: Utilizing plasma physics to create biomolecular movies

In spring of 2000, the LCLS Scientific Advisory Committee selected the top scientific experiments for LCLS. One of the proposed flagship experiments is atomic-resolution three-dimensional structure determination of isolated biolgical macromolecules and particles, with the ultimate goal of obtaining molecular (snapshot) movies. The key enabling insight was that radiation damage may be overcome by using x-ray pulses that are shorter than the time it takes for damage to manifest itself.
