The Pohang Accelerator Laboratory X-ray Free electron Laser (PAL-XFEL) project aims at the generation of X-ray FEL radiation for photon users. The machine consists of a 10 GeV normal-conducting S-band linear accelerator (linac) and two undulator beamlines initially. The hard X-ray beamline will provide FEL radiation between 0.6 and 0.1 nm or shorter. The soft X-ray line will provide FEL radiation between 4.5 and 1 nm. The linac and hard X-ray beamline construction was complete by the end of 2015. The installation of the soft X-ray line is ongoing. High power RF conditioning of the linac started in late autumn 2015. Beam commissioning of the linac started in April 2016. We report the beam commissioning status.

Diversified and extended applications of lithium-ion batteries demand the development of more enhanced materials that can be achieved by sophisticated synthetic methods. Combination of novel materials with strategic design of their shape on the nanometer scale enables a breakthrough to overcome problems experienced by present technologies. In this feature article, an overview is given of Mn-based and polyanion-based cathode materials with nanoscale features for lithium-ion batteries as materials to replace conventional bulk cathode materials. Various synthetic methods coupled with nanostructuring as well as the benefits obtained from the nanostructure are described. Strategic design of electrode materials in a nanoscale dimension provides breakthroughs in battery technologies. Enhanced cathodic materials drive advances of lithium rechargeable batteries in terms of capacity, rate capability, and cyclability. Various nanostructures such as nanoparticles, nanotubes, nanorods, nanoplates, and even the secondary structure of the primary nano-units enable promising materials for cathodes.

A luminescent lithium metal-organic framework (MOF) is constructed from the solvothermal reaction of Li+ and a well-designed organic ligand, bis(4-carboxyphenyl)-N-methylamine (H2CPMA). A Li-based MOF can detect an explosive aromatic compound containing nitro groups as an explosophore, by showing a dramatic color change with concurrent luminescence quenching in the solid state. The detection sites are proven directly through single-crystal-to-single-crystal transformations, which show strong interactions between the aromatic rings of the electron-rich CPMA2- molecules and the electron-deficient nitrobenzene. © 2012 American Chemical Society.

Hidden nuggets of gold: Mono- and divinylgold complexes (see scheme), key intermediates in the gold-mediated cyclization reaction of N-(propargyl) benzamides, are characterized by NMR and X-ray diffraction analyses. The monovinylgold intermediates undergo proto-deauration in acetonitrile by the substrate. In aqueous media, they produce oxidized products. The divinylgold species undergo reductive elimination to produce the corresponding dimerized products. © 2011 WILEY-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co. KGaA, Weinheim.

Experiments involving variable temperature, photo-excitation and gas sorption are supported by ancillary equipment and software in the beamline. The design of the beamline, its role and the main components are described. © 2016 International Union of Crystallography.

The structure of trans-[Cr(2,2,3-tet)F2]ClO4 (2,2,3-tet = 1,4,7,11-tetraazaundecane) has been determined by single-crystal X-ray diffraction. The complex crystallizes in the space group P 1 34; of the triclinic system with two mononuclear formula units in a cell of dimensions a = 5.6741(11), b = 9.971(2), c = 13.222(3) Å, α = 73.76(3)o, β = 81.08(3) and γ = 85.12(3). The chromium(III) atom is in a slightly distorted octahedral environment coordinated by four N atoms of 2,2,3-tet and two F ligands in a mutually trans (meso RS) geometry. The mean Cr-N(2,2,3-tet) and CrF bond lengths are 2.064(9) and 1.885(7) Å, respectively. The crystal packing is stabilized by several hydrogen bonds. The 5 K sharp-line absorption spectrum and the 298 K FT-infrared and UV-visible spectra have been measured. Using the electronic transitions, a ligand field optimization has been performed to determine the metal-ligand bonding properties of the coordinated atoms. It is found that the fluoride is a strong σ- and π-donor and the nitrogen atoms of the 2,2,3-tet ligand also have strong σ-donor properties toward the chromium(III). © 2013 Elsevier B.V.

We demonstrate the controllable electron doping into metallic atomic wires, indium wires self-assembled on the Si(111) surface, which feature one-dimensional (1D) band structure and temperature-driven metal-insulator transition. The electron filling of 1D metallic bands is systematically increased by alkali-metal adsorption, which, in turn, tunes the macroscopic property, that is, suppresses the metal-insulator transition. On the other hand, the dopant atoms induce a local lattice distortion without a band-gap opening, leading to a microscopic phase separation on the surface. The distinct bifunctional, electronic and structural, roles of dopants in different length scales are thus disclosed. © 2010 The American Physical Society.

As an electron beam injector of X-ray free-electron lasers (FELs), photoinjectors have been developed for the past few decades. Such an injector starting with a photocathode RF gun provides high brightness beams and therefore it is being adopted as an injector of X-ray FELs. In this paper we show how to improve photoinjector performance in terms of emittance and repetition rates by means of injector components optimization, especially with the gun. Transverse emittance at the end of an injector is reduced by optimizing the gun design, gun solenoid position, and accelerating section position. The repetition rate of an injector mainly depends on the gun. It is discussed that a repetition rate of 1 kHz at a normal-conducting S-band photoinjector is feasible by adopting a coaxial RF coupler and improving cooling-water channels surrounding the gun. © 2014 Elsevier B.V.

Core-shell type nanoalloys in which the Cu atoms uniformly reside as a shell around a core of Sn nanoparticles are achieved by reacting Cu(acac) 2 with tin nanoparticles. The core-shell Sn@Cu nanoparticles further demonstrate significantly improved rate capability at higher C rates than Sn@C nanoparticles. Copyright © 2010 WILEY-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co. KGaA, Weinheim.

Template-assisted formation of multicomponent Pd 6 coordination prisms and formation of their self-templated triply interlocked Pd 12 analogues in the absence of an external template have been established in a single step through Pd-N/Pd-O coordination. Treatment of cis-[Pd(en)(NO 3) 2] with K 3tma and linear pillar 4,4′-bpy (en=ethylenediamine, H 3tma=benzene-1,3,5-tricarboxylic acid, 4,4′-bpy=4,4′-bipyridine) gave intercalated coordination cage [{Pd(en)} 6(bpy) 3(tma) 2] 2[NO 3] 12 (1) exclusively, whereas the same reaction in the presence of H 3tma as an aromatic guest gave a H 3tma- encapsulating non-interlocked discrete Pd 6 molecular prism [{Pd(en)} 6(bpy) 3(tma) 2(H 3tma) 2][NO 3] 6 (2). Though the same reaction using cis-[Pd(NO 3) 2(pn)] (pn=propane-1,2-diamine) instead of cis-[Pd(en)(NO 3) 2] gave triply interlocked coordination cage [{Pd(pn)} 6(bpy) 3(tma) 2] 2[NO 3] 12 (3) along with non-interlocked Pd 6 analogue [{Pd(pn)} 6(bpy) 3(tma) 2](NO 3) 6 (3′), and the presence of H 3tma as a guest gave H 3tma-encapsulating molecular prism [{Pd(pn)} 6(bpy) 3(tma) 2(H 3tma) 2][NO 3] 6 (4) exclusively. In solution, the amount of 3′ decreases as the temperature is decreased, and in the solid state 3 is the sole product. Notably, an analogous reaction using the relatively short pillar pz (pz=pyrazine) instead of 4,4′-bpy gave triply interlocked coordination cage [{Pd(pn)} 6(pz) 3(tma) 2] 2[NO 3] 12 (5) as the single product. Interestingly, the same reaction using slightly more bulky cis-[Pd(NO 3) 2(tmen)] (tmen=N,N,N′,N′-tetramethylethylene diamine) instead of cis-[Pd(NO 3) 2(pn)] gave non-interlocked [{Pd(tmen)} 6(pz) 3(tma) 2] [NO 3] 6 (6) exclusively. Complexes 1, 3, and 5 represent the first examples of template-free triply interlocked molecular prisms obtained through multicomponent self-assembly. Formation of the complexes was supported by IR and multinuclear NMR ( 1H and 13C) spectroscopy. Formation of guest-encapsulating complexes (2 and 4) was confirmed by 2D DOSY and ROESY NMR spectroscopic analyses, whereas for complexes 1, 3, 5, and 6 single-crystal X-ray diffraction techniques unambiguously confirmed their formation. The gross geometries of H 3tma-encapsulating complexes 2 and 4 were obtained by universal force field (UFF) simulations. Copyright © 2012 WILEY-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co. KGaA, Weinheim.
