Event description

Description

The 100 J DiPOLE laser for dynamic compression experiments at European-XFEL will be delivered to the HED beamline in late 2019, with first user experiments likely to take place in mid-2021.

DiPOLE is capable of running at up to 10 Hz, some 1000-times faster than the current high-energy laser on the MEC beamline at LCLS. This greatly increased rep rate offers both many scientific opportunities and highlights technical and data analysis issues that the user community will need to address and solve in advance of full operations. For example:

* How can we maximally exploit the full 10 Hz repetition rate of DiPOLE?

* Can we automate structure analysis at 10 Hz?

* Can VISAR analysis be automated to run at 10 Hz?

* How do we optimise the laser pulse-shape in real time?

* How do we make the many thousands (tens of thousands?) of targets that will be needed to operate at 10 Hz.

By bringing together the leading researchers in the field, this workshop aims to both identify and address the technical and scientific issues that will arise as a result of the greatly increased repetition rate of DiPOLE.
