Here we present recent results from femtosecond time-resolved serial crystallography experiments performed at the X-Ray free electron laser SACLA. We have studied the ligand dissociation in Myoglobin in the time window between 0 fs and 2 ps under functionally relevant conditions, that is, at low laser excitation conditions to prevent spurious artefacts introduced by multi photon processes. The results provide an unprecedented insight into the ultrafast structural changes right after the ligand dissociation.
