Research output: Contribution to conferenceOtherAcademic

Abstract

We create ultrashort, ultracold electron bunches by accelerating electrons which are created by near-threshold photoionization of a cloud of laser-cooled atoms. With these bunches we can perform diffraction experiments of crystals of macromolecules.
