Paper Abstract

We report on the MBI User Facility at BESSY II, presently under construction, which is dedicated to study the dynamics of photo-induced processes by combining laser and synchrotron pulses. In this paper we focus on the synchronization of a modelocked ultrafast Ti:sapphire laser to the Berlin electron storage ring for synchrotron radiation (BESSY). Two different techniques have been applied -- one based on a digital phase comparator and the other based on analog high-harmonic mixing. Both schemes may be easily adjusted to either single, multi- or hybrid-bunch operation of the synchrotron. Moreover, the temporal accuracy of the synchronization unit suitably matches the widths of the synchrotron pulses (some ten picoseconds) to be expected at BESSY II. Therefore, the currently performed test experiments at BESSY I provide the basis for time- resolved photon-induced experiments which combine laser and SR-undulator pulses in a pump-probe scheme at BESSY II. This facility will be available within the first half of 1999.
