Femtosecond time-resolved coherent diffractive imaging (CDI) experiments on pristine Xe clusters and Xe clusters embedded in superfluid helium nanodroplets have been performed using a new
undulator-based X-ray pump/X-ray probe technique at the Linac Coherent Light Source (LCLS). The study aims at elucidating electron dynamics in sub-micron sized clusters induced by irradiation with intense X-ray pulses. A combination of single-shot CDI images in coincidence with single-shot ion mass spectra is employed to obtain a detailed time-resolved picture
