    We experimentally demonstrate efficient switching of the hard x-ray Bragg reflectivity of a SrRuO3/SrTiO3 superlattice by optical excitation of large-amplitude coherent acoustic superlattice phonons. The rocking curve changes drastically on a 1 ps timescale. The (0 0 116) reflection is almost...
