EIS-TIMER PostDoc Research Associate at FERMI ref. E/15/03
Elettra-Sincrotrone Trieste is an international multidisciplinary research center operated as a user facility, featuring a 2.0/2.4 GeV, third-generation synchrotron light source and a variety of support laboratories. The extremely high quality of the machine and beamlines has set new performance records and has been producing results of great scientific interest. See http://www.elettra.eu for more information. A free-electron laser (FEL) based, fourth generation source - FERMI - is currently under commissioning. Seehttp://www.elettra.eu/lightsources/fermi.html for more information.
The aim of the EIS-TIMER beamline at FERMI is to extend four-wave-mixing (FWM) applications, in particular those based on the transient grating (TG) approach, into the extreme ultraviolet (EUV) and soft x-ray regime. The possibility to exploit such coherent non-linear methods at EUV/soft x-ray wavelengths is expected to be a major breakthrough. A special setup (mini-TIMER) has been recently used to demonstrate FWM experiments with EUV transient gratings, and it is currently available for preliminary FEL-based FWM experiments at the DiProI end-station.
