Ultrafast AMO physics at the LCLS x-ray FEL
Stanford PULSE Institute, Stanford University and SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory, Menlo Park, CA 94025, USA
The Linac Coherent Light Source at the SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory, Stanford University, began operation in 2009 as the world's first hard x-ray free electron laser. Early experiments have concentrated on atomic physics, and have demonstrated several key features of the ultrafast high field x-ray-atom interaction. This paper reviews some of these early results.
