Pump & Probe dynamics in X-ray Photon Correlation Spectroscopy

Michael Legenstein, Katharina Holzweber, Christoph Tietz, Bogdan Sepiol

A new and promising technique to study the dynamics on an atomic scale in hard condensed matter uses high flux coherent X-ray radiation. The technique is called Atomic scale X-Ray Photon Correlation Spectroscopy (aXPCS). Since new X-Ray sources have become more powerful in recent years the question of influence of X-rays on materials is becoming more important. Here the effect of the beam on many different materials is presented. By comparison between the different species first conclusions about the effect are drawn. Additionally quantitative and qualitative results on all of the investigated materials are presented in detail.
