Abstract

With the advent of third-generation synchrotron-radiation sources now being built, research in the area of atomic, molecular, and optical physics using X-rays from these insertion-device-based facilities is expected to experience a renaissance. Many of the most sought after experimental goals in this area of reseach will become possible or even routine. To highlight some of the exciting possibilities, some specific examples are discussed, such as the X-ray and Auger resonant-Raman effect and polarized molecular X-ray emission. Plans for implementation of an X-ray synchrotron-radiation beamline dedicated to atomic, molecular, and optical physics at the Advanced Light Source are presented, with emphasis on the enhanced capabilities that will be available at this state-of-the-art facility.
