The Berkeley Ultrafast Dynamics Light Source : a Recirculating Linac Synchrotron Light Source for Ultrafast X-Ray Science

S. De Santis
(Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory) ABSTRACT This femtosecond synchrotron radiation x-ray source, currently under development at LBNL, is based on a flat-beam RF gun and a recirculating superconducting linac that provides beam to an array of undulators and bend magnets. X-ray pulse durations of <100 fs at a 10 kHz repetition rate are obtained by a combination of electron pulse compression, transverse temporal correlation of electrons and x-ray pulse compression. With this ultra fast synchrotron radiation source it will be possible to directly measure the motion of molecules and atoms in very fast dynamic systems as well as to provide sufficient flux for weak scattering systems.An overview of the project and some of the technical challenges involved will be presented.
