XFELs: cutting edge X-ray light for chemical and material sciences PCCP themed issue now online and free to access

We are delighted to announce that the Physical Chemistry Chemical Physics (PCCP) themed issue XFELs: cutting edge X-ray light for chemical and material sciences is now online and free to access until the end of May 2020.

XFELs (X-ray free electron lasers) provide a coherent, monochromatic and ultra-short pulse X-ray light. This enables experiments into the ultrafast dynamics of electron excitation and chemical reactions, and coherent imaging of materials.

Guest Edited by Professor Kiyotaka Asakura, Professor Kelly Gaffney,Dr Chris Milne and Dr Makina Yabashi, this collection reviews the very recent achievements of XFELs in chemical and material sciences.
