JPhysB has now begun publishing the second Special Issue in its Frontiers of Free-Electron Laser Science Series. Frontiers of Free-Electron Laser Science Series I was a successful look at the state of the field of Free-Electron Laser (FEL) Science as it was at the time. The new issue brings an updated perspective, as well as covering some of the exciting contributions that FEL science has made in a wide variety of fields.
We are introducing the second edition—Series II—on this topic, covering work carried out at the world’s new accelerator-based short-wavelength free-electron laser (FEL) facilities, and taking a broader look at the scientific advances being made by researchers in a variety of fields, related to AMO science, using these remarkable new x-ray devices with their ultrafast and high intensity pulses. This issue will feature review articles as well as research papers, and will summarize the exciting new work in fields such as molecular imaging, x-ray optics, non-linear x-ray interactions, materials in extreme conditions, energy transfer in photosynthetic systems, as well as AMO science.
