The Advanced Photon Source (APS) operates with a timing structure advantageous for ultrafast dynamics experiments and, as a result, X-ray time-resolved studies on the 100-picosecond timescale have flourished. The standard operating mode, 24-bunch mode, runs 65% of the time and a hybrid singlet mode runs 15% of the time, yielding a total of 80% of beamtime easily accessible for studies of ultrafast dynamics using laser-pump/X-ray probe techniques. This article highlights recent enhanced capabilities for time-resolved studies at the APS.
