In this thesis, nonperturbative pair creation from the quantum field theoretic ground state in the presence of strong macroscopic gauge fields is studied. Employing different approaches such as the string inspired worldline formalism, the worldline instanton method, semiclassical WKB techniques as well as quantum kinetic theory, we investigate various aspects of this so-called Schwinger effect.

Vlasov Simulation of Exotic Phase-Space Densities via Tree-Based Domain-Decomposition
[DESY-THESIS-2018-022]
Hamburg : Verlag Deutsches Elektronen-Synchrotron, DESY-THESIS 77 pp. () [10.3204/PUBDB-2018-02704] = Masterarbeit, Universität Hamburg, 2018  GO
Magnetic bunch compression is used to produce the high-brightness electron bunches needed for the operation of a free-electron laser. A longitudinal energy chirp -- imprinted on the bunch via off-crest acceleration -- results in the compression of the bunch in a subsequent dispersive section of the accelerator in form of a magnetic chicane.Such a setup sets the stage for the self-interaction of charge-density in homogeneities via the space-charge fields they generate within the bunch.This can potentially lead to an enhancement of initially present charge-densitymodulations; an effect known as microbunching amplification.Numerical simulation of this dynamics is encumbered by the fact that phase-space densities of electron bunches encountered at free-electron lasers typically exhibit an ``exotic'' structure, as they form a thin, hair-like bandmeandering through phase-space.In this thesis, a Vlasov-simulation approach based on tree domain-decomposition is presented, that allows for the efficient simulation of these phase-space densities despite their exoticness.Further, a beam-dynamics model is presented, which most notably enables the time-discrete treatment of collective space-charge effects in drift regions of the accelerator.Based on this model an arbitrary-order perturbation theory for the microbunching gain in a bunch-compressor is conceived and applied to the case of a long bunch with monochromatic density modulation.Finally, the results from theory and simulation are compared as part of thebenchmarking of the simulation code..

Optical and aerodynamic focusing of isolated particles for diffractive imaging experiments at X-ray free electron lasers

Hamburg : Verlag Deutsches Elektronen-Synchrotron, DESY-THESIS 191 pp. () [10.3204/PUBDB-2018-04428] = Dissertation, Universität Hamburg, 2018  GO
The highly brilliant, short and coherent pulses produced by X-ray free-electron lasers (XFELs) opened up a unique opportunity to image small objects in nature, such as protein macromolecules, clusters, viruses and nanoparticles with nearly atomic spatial resolution, and their dynamic processes can be probed with femtosecond temporal resolution. Single-particle imaging (SPI) is a coherent diffraction imaging technique at XFELs that consists of directing a stream of randomly oriented isolated bio-particles across the focus of the X-ray beam to construct high-resolution 3D structure from diffraction patterns of multiple identical particles.

This thesis presents the study of the time development of hadronic showers in a highly granular hadron calorimeter using data collected by the CALICE Analog Hadron Calorimeter (AHCAL) technological prototype at the Super Proton Synchrotron (SPS) at CERN in July 2015 in μ−, e− and hadron beams up to 90 GeV.Highly granular calorimeters are designed for the concept of Particle Flow Algorithm which aims to mea- sure each individual particle in a jet using the best sub-detector measurement. The Particle Flow approach is a key aspect of the detectors for the International Linear Collider (ILC) which is a future linear lepton collider designed for precision physics studies at a center of mass energy up to 500 GeV.The CALICE Collaboration is developing highly granular calorimeters for future colliders.

Plasma wakefields deliver accelerating fields that are approximately a 100 times higher thanthose in conventional radiofrequency or even superconducting radiofrequency cavities. Thisopens a transformative path towards novel, compact and potentially ubiquitous accelerators.These prospects, and the increasing demand for electron accelerator beamtime for various applicationsin natural, material and life sciences, motivate the research and development on novelplasma-based accelerator concepts.

The scattering of two vector bosons is a crucial class of processes for the electroweak theory and has only recently been observed at the Large Hadron Collider.This thesis presents detailed predictions for cross sections and differential observables at leading order for the scattering of two positively charged vector bosons at a hadron-hadron collider with a centre-of-mass energy of $\sqrt{s} = 13 \text{ TeV}$.This involves predictions at parton level as well as predictions matched to parton shower.Two cases are studied: We provide predictions for vector boson scattering derived with fixed renormalisation scale and factorisation scale and for dynamically assigned scales.All results are computed with the Monte Carlo event generator WHIZARD and are validated in the course of an international collaboration..

Cold Beams of Large Molecules for Structural Dynamics Studies
Hamburg 123 pp. () [10.3204/PUBDB-2018-04495] = Dissertation, Universität Hamburg, 2018  GO
Biomolecules and their reactions are of great interest because they are important for the functions in our body and thus for health. The structure of a molecule defines its function, and in this work we demonstrate the crucial steps that will allow direct recording of structural information from large biological molecules through gas-phase x-ray di↵raction.

Hamburg : Verlag Deutsches Elektronen-Synchrotron, DESY THESIS 137 pp. () [10.3204/PUBDB-2018-03848] = Dissertation, Universität Hamburg, 2018  GO
With the recent developments of modern synchrotron and X-ray Free Electron Laser (XFEL) light sources high speed and micrometer sized liquid jets have become one of the most important sample delivery systems. For that reason it is highly important to develop liquid jet devices compatible with micrometer X-ray beams, which are optimized for the investigation of nanostructures and the behavior of complex liquids behavior under flow.This thesis reports a detailed X-ray scattering study of a liquid jet produced by a gas dynamic virtual nozzle (GDVN) system.

Accelerator-based light sources are extremely useful machines for investigating matter on a microscopic level, yet their capability for time-resolved research is limited by the femtosecond-scale duration of their radiation pulses. Attosecond beams could enhance these capacities enabling the measurement of most outer shell electron dynamics in molecular and atomic systems. [...]
