Atomic and molecular systems under intense X-ray radiation

Maria Krikunova, Nicusor Timneanu und Jakob Andreasson

ISBN 978-3-319-20172-6

DOI 10.1007/978-3-319-20173-3

Abstract: The review covers recent progress in the development of  X-ray pulse metrology essential for experiments at Free-Electron-Lasers. The scientific section is focused on time-resolved studies of ionization dynamics of atoms, molecules and (bio-)nanoparticles. We discuss the role of ionization dynamics for high resolution imaging of bio- and bio-like nanoparticles and illustrate the potential for multi-directional imaging of unique non-reproducible samples.
