  • Russian Participants of European XFEL Observe and Document Never-Before-Seen Effect

    A team of ITMO University specialists and their German colleagues have successfully used the world’s largest free-electron X-ray laser to conduct an experiment on ultrafast demagnetization of ferromagnetic material using femtosecond IR excitation. While studying the dynamics of this process, the scientists had discovered a new type of X-ray scattering in ferromagnetic material, which occurs immediately after the laser pulse and lasts for some 100 picoseconds. Their findings were recently presented at the European XFEL Users’ Meeting in Hamburg, which brought together over 1,300 participants from 30 countries. ITMO.NEWS got in touch with Igor Pronin, the head of this project, who presented a plenary report on the study during the event.
