Since 2014, the SLAC UED instrument has been developing robust methods in the pursuit of time-resolved measurements to control and understand molecular structural dynamics and the coupling of electronic and nuclear motions in a variety of material and chemical systems. Leveraging these successes and taking advantage of recent system-level improvements in machine capability and reliability, we are pleased to announce MeV-UED’s fourth External User experimental time ("Run 4") in mid to late 2022. In Run 4, the MeV-UED instrument will offer only one experimental configuration; our recently upgraded gas-phase UED setup optimized to study nuclear and molecular dynamics. (see Endstations and Specifications).
Please note the following important information:
Virtual MeV-UED User Meeting will be held at 9am PST on Wednesday, October 27, 2021
A webcast meeting will be held to better inform the users about the developments at MeV-UED before the upcoming MeV-UED proposal deadline on November 24th. SLAC MeV-UED staff will inform the community about the latest capabilities and be available for Q & A. Information on how to connect can be found here.
