Postdoc 'Imaging at extreme intensities using XFEL' at the University of Hamburg, Germany

X-ray Free Electron Lasers (XFEL) provide orders of magnitude increase in pulse frequency compared to other sources and have the potential to realize the goal of single-molecule diffractive imaging. Atomic-resolution diffraction from single macromolecules ideally requires pulse fluences above 1014photons/um2, which is about two orders of magnitude higher than available in current experiments. We are developing multilayer Laue lenses, which can be used to focus X-rays down to few nanometers. Combined with XFELs this opens up opportunities for 3D imaging at the nanometer scale and studying materials under extreme temperatures and pressures.
