Abstract

Free-electron lasers (FELs) currently represent a step forward on time-resolved investigations on any phase of matter through pump-probe methods involving FELs and laser beams. That class of experiments requires an accurate spatial and temporal superposition of pump and probe beams on the sample, which at present is still a critical procedure. More efficient approaches are demanded to quickly achieve the superposition and synchronization of the beams. Here, we present what we believe is a novel technique based on an integrated device allowing the simultaneous characterization and the fast spatial and temporal overlapping of the beams, reducing the alignment procedure from hours to minutes.
