LCLS X-ray Correlation Spectroscopy (XCS)
Here's a glimpse of what we've been up to during the last experimental run – from June to November 2017 – at the Linac Coherent Light Source.
John Hill watched with eager anticipation as controllers ramped up the power systems driving SLAC's X-ray laser in an attempt to achieve the record high energies needed to make his experiment a runaway success.
The Brookhaven National Laboratory scientist was the leader of a research team that had come from Illinois, Germany, Switzerland and England to use the Linac Coherent Light Source (LCLS), and this was their last day. They would get only one shot.
