1. Soft X-ray ionisation of atoms within TDDFT and nuclear effects on the attosecond TRPES of ethylene
Mrs Alison Crawford (Nano Bio Spectroscopy Group, UPV/EHU)
First, I will demonstrate the capabilities of time-dependent density functional theory (TDDFT) for strong-field, short wavelength (soft X-ray) physics, as compared to a formalism based on rate equations. TDDFT provides a very good description of the total and individual ionization yields for Ne and Ar atoms exposed to strong laser pulses over a wide range of intensities. Second, using TDDFT...

High-resolution x-ray imaging of nanosize biological samples is one of the most important goals of the research with X-ray free electron lasers (XFEL) . Outstanding results have already been achieved in serial nano-crystallography . There has been also a significant progress in the field of single particle imaging . However, radiation damage is still a limiting factor, in particular...

The role of elementary processes during interaction of short XUV free-electron laser pulses with solid material is studied by means of a specific collisional radiative model (CRM) without spatial dimension applied to solid aluminum. The calculation of the energy deposition requires a proper model for the bound electron kinetics as the pulse is mainly absorbed via photoionization of bound...
