Diamond Shock Wave at LCLS

This movie shows a shock wave passing through a thin diamond. The movie uses a sequence of images that were collected at different time points using SLAC's Linac Coherent Light source X-ray laser. The movie slows down a process that spanned just 3 nanoseconds, or billionths of a second, and is measured in tens of microns, or hundredths of millimeters.
