Dr. Tadashi Togashi is an expert on time-resolved x-ray measurements
using femtosecond-lasers at the SPring-8 Angstrom Compact free-electron Laser (SACLA) in Harima, Japan. Besides his own research, he is responsible for the optimization of the laser systems for user experiments. With his latest project, he shows how to significantly improve the results
for scientists working on pump-probe experiments
at SACLA and elsewhere.
Our new story explains the crucial step for this optimization.
