Slicing X-Rays by the Millionths of a Billionth of a Second

Abstract:
Scientists working at Berkeley Lab's Advanced Light Source (ALS) have reported the first femtosecond x-ray spectroscopy experiment. Using a beam of ALS x-rays that were "laser-sliced" into pulse lengths of about 150 femtoseconds, the research team performed time-resolved x‑ray absorption spectroscopy measurements on samples of vanadium dioxide. This material has been shown to change from an electrical insulator to a conductor in about 80 femtoseconds.
