Characterization of X-ray gas attenuator plasmas by optical emission and tunable laser absorption spectroscopies

A study on the plasma generated on a high-power X-ray gas attenuator is presented, characterizing its dependence on gas pressure, gas type, X-ray beam size and absorbed power.

Post-Sample Aperture for Low Background Diffraction Experiments at X-Ray Free-Electron Lasers

Diffraction experiments with weakly scattering samples often suffer from a low signal-to-noise ratio due to unwanted background scatter. Improving the signal-to-noise ratio for single-particle imaging experiments is particularly important as the diffraction signal is very weak. Here, we demonstrate a simple way to minimize the background scattering by placing an aperture downstream of the sample.

Simulations of Co-GISAXS during kinetic roughening of growth surfaces

Scanning X-ray diffraction on cardiac tissue: automatized data analysis and processing

An entire tissue slice of a mouse heart has been analyzed by scanning X-ray diffraction, using a micrometer spot sized beam and analyzed using an analysis toolbox that is provided for general use. In this way, variations of the local molecular structure parameters of the sarcomere, the basic structural unit of the myofibrils which make up muscle fibers, can be assessed, such as local orientation, strain and variation in filament lattice spacing.

A novel method for resonant inelastic soft X-ray scattering via photoelectron spectroscopy detection

A description of the concept and first test of a photoelectron-based method for measuring inelastic X-ray scattering is given.

Accepted 14 August 2017

Aberration-free aspherical lens shape for shortening the focal distance of an already convergent beam

The ideal lens surface for refocusing an already convergent beam is found to be one sheet of a Cartesian oval. This result is applied to the optimal construction of a compound refractive lens for X-ray nanofocusing.

Accepted 10 August 2017

Electron and photon diagnostics for plasma acceleration based FELs


Accepted 8 August 2017

The effect of self-consistent potentials on EXAFS analysis

The use of self-consistency in the computation of scattering potentials has scant impact on EXAFS analysis.

Accepted 30 July 2017

The 3D characteristics of post-traumatic syringomyelia in a rat model: a propagation-based synchrotron radiation microtomography study

The ability of synchrotron radiation phase-contrast microtomography to visualize the three-dimensional morphology of the spinal cord cavity induced by trauma is shown. It could be used as a reliable tool for tracking cavity formation and morphological changes in a post-traumatic syringomyelia animal model.
