Special Issue on XFELs

Original manuscripts are sought to the special issue on X-ray Free Electron Lasers (XFELs) of High Power Laser Science and Engineering (HPL).

The scope of this special issue is to highlight the cutting-edge theoretical and experimental results related to XFELs worldwide. The topics invited for inclusion are, but not limited to:

  • Advanced XFEL techniques (e.g. attosecond technology, high rep-rate, multi-pulse/color, longitudinal coherent pulse generation, polarization control, etc.)
  • Synchronization and diagnostics (e. g. advanced synchronization schemes, delay and duration diagnostics, etc.)
  • Compact XFELs (e. g. hybrid RF-ICS, LWFA, THz-based, XFELs)
  • Automation and machine-learning in XFELs (e.g. background optimization, multiplexing, machine design and beam dynamics, etc.)
  • Ultrafast laser systems and related technologies (e.g. ultrahigh peak power lasers, pump-probe lasers, OPCPA, THz, etc.)
  • Front-end laser technology (e.g. novel photo-injectors, laser heaters and laser-based electron manipulation and conditioning, etc.)
