Secondary sources in E1
High harmonic generation (HHG): This beam line will deliver a coherent collimated beam of photons with energies in the range 10 eV–120 eV.
Plasma X-ray source (PXS): This will be an incoherent source of hard X-ray radiation.
End-stations in E1
MAC: a Multi-purpose chamber for AMO (Atomic, molecular, and optical) sciences and CDI (Coherent Diffractive Imaging).
ELIps: ELI Beamlines VUV ellipsometer for sub-ps experiments; an end-station for VUV and soft X-ray materials science.
Hard X-ray end-station: TREX; a modular station for Time Resolved Experiemnts (scattering, diffraction, spectroscopy and imaging) with X-rays.
Optical probes and pump beams: An advanced station for optical spectroscopy, including stimulated Raman scattering. Also the source for a wide array of synchronized pump beams in the range from UV to IR and THz.
The combination of X-ray pulses with sub-picosecond duration and perfectly synchronized and tunable UV-VIS-IR "pump" pulses is the foundation for the development of the end station for X-ray scattering and diffraction (XRD), X-ray absorption spectroscopy (XAS) and phase contrast imaging. Due to the modular design of this TREX area we will be able to switch rapidly between the main experimental modes and even to move parts of the experimental set up to other locations, e.g the Betatron beamline in E2.
Optical probe facility should provide users with the option to pump and probe any process with femtosecond time resolution in any spectral region from 200 nm (near ultra violet) to 10 µm (mid infrared) and also by programmable terahertz waveforms. Pulses can then be spectrally analyzed for transient effects on a shot-to-shot basis with 16-bit dynamic resolution.
