A Time-resolved X-ray Beamline (NW14A)

An ultrafast X-ray "CAMERA" for capturing atoms and molecules in action



NW14A is an insertion device beamline aiming for time-resolved X-ray diffraction, scattering and absorption experiments. This beamline is particularly suitable for studying ultrafast strictural dynamics in condensed matter systems such as organic and inorganic crystals, photoactive biological systems, photocatalysts, etc. Structural dynamics triggered by optical laser pulses is captured with the synchronized pump-and-probe system. With the relatively high X-ray photon flux provided from the two undulators, it is feasible to produce atomic-scale movies of the photo-induced phenomena with 100-ps time resolution.
