 Abstract: The Artemis facility for ultrafast XUV science is constructed around a high average power carrier-envelope phasestabilised system, which is used to generate tuneable pulses across a wavelength range spanning the UV to the far infrared, few-cycle pulses at 800nm and short pulses of XUV radiation produced through high harmonic generation. The XUV pulses can be delivered to interaction stations for materials science and atomic and molecular physics and chemistry through two vacuum beamlines for broadband XUV or narrow-band tuneable XUV pulses. The novel XUV monochromator provides bandwidth selection and tunability while preserving the pulse duration to within 10 fs. Measurements of the XUV pulse duration using an XUV-pump IR-probe technique demonstrate that the XUV pulselength is below 30 fs for a 28 fs drive laser pulse. The materials science station, which contains a hemispherical electron analyser and five-axis manipulator cooled to 14K, is optimised for photoemission experiments with the XUV. The end-station for atomic and molecular physics and chemistry includes a velocity-map imaging detector and molecular beam source for gas-phase experiments. The facility is now fully operational and open to UK and European users for twenty weeks per year. Some of the key new scientific results obtained on the facility include: the extension of HHG imaging spectroscopy to the mid-infrared; a technique for enhancing the conversion efficiency of the XUV by combining two laser fields with non-harmonically related wavelengths; and observation of D3+ photodissociation in intense laser fields.
