Single shot X-ray imaging of materials in extremes


We use single, ultrafast x-ray pulses from an x-ray free electron laser to image materials while they are being shocked with high power laser systems. This research has applications to inertial confinement fusion energy applications. It is funded by the Department of Energy through SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory.

Meeting times: Every other Friday, 9:30 am (Zoom and N261 ESC).
Lead Student: Daniel Hodge.
Funding: Department of Energy – Fusion Energy Sciences.
