Abstract

An experimental system, SPINETT (SACLA Pump-probe INstrumEnt for Tracking Transient dynamics), dedicated for ultrafast pump-probe experiments using X-ray free-electron lasers has been developed. SPINETT consists of a chamber operated under 1 atm helium pressure, two Von Hamos spectrometers, and a large two-dimensional detector having a short work distance. This platform covers complementary X-ray techniques; one can perform time-resolved X-ray absorption spectroscopy, time-resolved X-ray emission spectroscopy, and time-resolved X-ray diffuse scattering. Two types of liquid injectors have been prepared for low-viscosity chemical solutions and for protein microcrystals embedded in a matrix. We performed a test experiment at SPring-8 Angstrom Compact free-electron LAser and demonstrated the capability of SPINETT to obtain the local electronic structure and geometrical information simultaneously.
