The ICXRL was established to promote advanced extreme UV and X-ray sources, and their application in physics, (bio-)chemistry, and materials science. Joining ICXRL means experiencing the latest trends, and shaping the future progress. Latest results on state-of-the-art X-ray Free-Electron Lasers (XFEL) as well as tabletop systems are presented. Lecturers are expected to submit a peer-reviewed paper for the SPIE monograph.

The HiLASE Centre in Dolni Brezany is celebrating another success; another world record. At the end of January, the High Energy Slab Lasers scientific team managed to break their own world record on the BIVOJ laser system by 40%! Converting to the second harmonic frequency, they demonstrated 515 nm, second harmonic pulses with an energy of 95 J at a repetition rate of 10 Hz.

Sanin Zulic and Sunil Pathak shared their knowledge on how laser shock peening (LSP) can be used to improve residual stresses in additively manufactured parts. In their article in Laser Systems/Europe they describe LSP as an excellent solution for improving AM parts for applications that require high-quality parts, either because of technical requirements or safety reasons.

An international team led by Oxford Physics, University of Rochester, and University of Chicago scientists was able to unravel the inner workings of heat conduction in the largest structures in the universe known as clusters of galaxies. These clusters are made of thousands of galaxies, bound together by gravity. Most matter in galaxy clusters is in the form of tenuous ionized gas (called plasma) that is threaded by magnetic fields and is in a turbulent state. In observing many of these clusters of galaxies, astronomers have been facing a difficult conundrum: they all appear much hotter than expected.
