We have previosuly shown that we can generate near TW, 15 fs duration, near transform limited X-ray pulses in the 4 to 8 keV photon energy range using the LCLS-II copper linac, two electron bunches, a 4-crystal monochromator/delay line and a fast transverse bunch kicker. The first bunch generates a strong seeding X-ray signal, and the second bunch, initially propagating off-axis, interacts with the seed in a tapered amplifier undulator, where it propagates on axis. In this paper, we investigate the design of the 4-crystal monochromator, acting also as an X-ray delay system, and of the fast kicker, in preparation of the implementation of the system in LCLS-II.

  In my talk I will report the generation and diagnostic of GW-scale soft X-ray attosecond pulses with a current-enhanced X-ray free-electron laser. Our method is based on the enhaced SASE scheme, where an electron bunch with high-current spike is generated by the interaction of the relativistic electrons with a high-power infrared pulse. The X-ray pulses generated by the compressed electron beam are diagnosed with angular photoelectron streaking, and have a mean pulse duration of 350 attoseconds. Our source has a peak brightness that is 6 orders of magnitude larger than any other source of isolated attosecond pulses in the soft X-ray spectral region. This unique combination of high intensity, high photon energy and pulse duration enables the investigation of valence electron dynamics with non-linear spectroscopy and single-shot imaging. I will also discuss the generation of two-color attosecond pulses and our future plans for attosecond science at LCLS-II.
