Analyzing thousands of interference patterns such as this one will help characterize the behavior of the LCLS X-rays. First experiments with third LCLS Instrument go to the sourcea

The third round of experiments at SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory's Linac Coherent Light Source began in early October at a whole new level of capability. For the first time they included research with the third LCLS instrument, the X-Ray Pump Probe, whose hard X-rays penetrate deeper into matter than the soft X-rays used by the first two instruments.
