COLLOQUIUM: Controlling the Production and Performance of Materials at the Mesoscale: The Matter-Radiation Interactions in Extremes (MaRIE) Capability

Dr. Cris Barnes
Los Alamos National Laboratory

The Matter-Radiation Interactions in Extremes (MaRIE) project will provide capability that will address the control of performance and production of materials at the mesoscale. MaRIE will characterize the behavior of interfaces, defects, and microstructure between the spatial scales of atomic structures and those of the engineering continuum where there is a current capability gap. The mission need is well-met with an x-ray source, coherent to optimize disordered imaging capability, brilliant and high-rep-rate to provide time-dependent information at the sound wave scale, and high enough energy to see into and through the mesoscale of materials of interest. The mission need, the requirements, a plausible alternative reference design of a 12-GeV linac-based 42-keV x-ray free-electron laser, and the status of the project will be described – and hopefully draw your interest!
