Real-time studies of reversible lattice dynamics by femtosecond X-ray diffraction

Clemens v. Korff Schmising / Matias Bargheer / Michael Woerner / Thomas Elsaesser
Published Online: 2009-09-25 | DOI: https://doi.org/10.1524/zkri.2008.0028


Ultrafast X-ray diffraction allows for observing structural dynamics of condensed matter in real-time, in this way directly probing reversible and irreversible geometry changes on atomic length and time scales. This article reports recent progress in this rapidly developing field, focusing on experimental work performed with laser-driven X-ray sources. After an introduction into the state-of-the-art methods for generation and measurement, we discuss coherent lattice motions of ferroelectric nanolayered systems and structural dynamics related to polar dipole solvation in bulk molecular crystals.

Keywords: Femtosecond X-ray diffraction; Ultrafast lattice motions; Molecular crystals; Dipole solvation; Ferroelectric nanostructures
