An ultracold electron source for ultrafast electron diffraction experiments

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.
