Adding the dimension of time to the selectivity of X-rays is bringing new impetus to many longstanding scientific questions. The ability to distinguish atomic constituents and their properties, to capture transient states of matter, and to follow electronic and structural dynamics on elemental time and length scales, gives a fresh look at functionality. In particular, the coupling of different degrees of freedom, dynamic pathways in multidimensional landscapes are addressed in relation to chemical dynamics. We intentionally cross the boundar­ies of physics, chemistry, and materials science and focus on the unifying aspects of function in the light of X-ray matter interaction – with implications from fundamentals to experimental approaches.
