Abstract
We are improving critical technologies needed for the development of laser-driven, tabletop ultrafast x-ray sources suitable for ultrafast characterization of transient structures of energized molecules undergoing dissociation, isomerization, or intramolecular energy redistribution. In this SBIR project, Mesa Photonics will develop an X-ray ultrafast laser pulse measurement instrument for complete characterization (intensity and phase) of femtosecond to picosecond X-ray sources. This technology is critical for the development, control, and efficiency of table-top ultrafast x-ray sources as well as free electron-based sources.Commercial Applications and Other Benefits: Low cost, efficient, coherent x-ray sources will improve medical imaging and diagnosis. Improved imaging for Homeland Security will result in safer ports and airports. These systems can also be used for non-destructive testing, microanalysis, and microscopy
