Coherent diffractive imaging at free-electron lasers promises to allow the reconstruction of the three-dimensional molecular structures of isolated particles at atomic resolution . However, because of the typically low signal to noice ratio, this requires the collection of a large amount of diffraction patterns. Since every intercepted particle is destroyed by the intense x-ray pulse, a new and preferably identical sample particle has to be delivered into every pulse. One delivery technique is an aerodynamic lens stack (ALS), providing collimated or focused beams of nanoparticles. With the aid of numerical simulations we optimized the geometry of an ALS to produce high-density beams of nanoparticles, e.g., gold nanoparticles. Here, we present the simulation result for an optimized ALS and its experimental characterization using novel laser-based particle detection techniques . We also show an application of ALS for XFEL experiments on gold nanoparticles.
