HZDR Colloquium on the planned Dresden Advanced Light Infrastructure (DALI)

02.03.2022 (Wednesday) , 13:00 - 14:30

At the online event on March 2, 2022 from 1 to 2:30 pm, the HZDR will present their plans on the superconducting electron accelerator-based radiation source DALI. They will provide an overview of the infrastructure and specify what kind of experiments will be possible with this unique combination of a high-field radiation source for terahertz (THz) radiation and a free-electron laser for wavelengths in the vacuum ultraviolet (VUV).

Breakout Sessions will allow discussions on science cases and your ideas in the following four areas:

  • Chemistry/VUV
  • Positrons for Materials Research
  • THz for Biological Systems
  • THz for Solid State Physics

DALI – short characteristics

The Dresden Advanced Light Infrastructure (DALI) is designed as an integrated, acceleratorbased THz and VUV source that covers the frequency range from 0.1 THz to 30 THz with coherent, semi-narrowband (≈10% spectral bandwidth) few-cycle radiation pulses and the VUV spectral range from 50 nm to 250 nm with intense, quasi-transform-limited subpicosecond pulses. Driven by a superconducting 50 MeV electron linear accelerator (LINAC), the THz source will provide radiation with high pulse energy (100 μJ – 1 mJ) and high repetition rate (100 kHz up to 1 MHz), an unprecedented combination of both parameters being a factor of at least 100 larger compared to what is available to date. The VUV FEL source will be based on a 300 MeV superconducting accelerator, implemented as a 150 MeV recirculation LINAC, and provide up to 30 μJ pulse energy at 0.1 – 5 MHz repetition rate. With a sub-100 fs synchronization, this combined, worldwide unique THz/VUV facility will open a wealth of new avenues for investigations of nonlinear and high-field-driven phenomena.
