title: Effects of undulator interruptions on the performance of high-gain FEL amplifiers
format: conference proceeding
conference: FEL 1995 17th
year: 1996
3 authors: K.J. Kim | Xie, M. | C. Pellegrini
abstract: The construction as well as the operation of a long undulator required for short wavelength generation with high-gain free-electron lasers will become easier if the undulator could be interrupted with drift sections every few gain lengths. To evaluate the effect of such interruption on the FEL performance, we study the following three effects; (i) the diffraction loss, (ii) the free space slippage and (iii) the phase de-coherence. The effect (i) is found to be small, the effect (ii) gives a condition on the length of the drift section and the effect (iii) is small, but not negligible. (3 References).

abstract: In recent years significant studies have been initiated on the feasibility of utilizing a portion of the 3 km S-band accelerator at SLAC to drive a short wavelength (4.5-1.5 Angstrom) Linac Coherent Light Source (LCLS), a Free-Electron Laser (FEL) operating in the Self-Amplified Spontaneous Emission (SASE) regime. Electron beam requirements for single-pass saturation in a minimal time include: 1) a peak current in the 7 kA range, 2) a relative energy spread of <0.05%, add 3) a transverse emittance, epsilon [rad-m], approximating the diffraction-limit condition epsilon=lambda/4 pi, where lambda[m] is the output wavelength. Requirements on the insertion device include field error levels of 0.02% for keeping the electron bunch centered on and in phase with the amplified photons, and a focusing beta of 8 m/rad for inhibiting the dilution of its transverse density. Although much progress has been made in developing individual components and beam-processing techniques necessary for LCLS operation down to similar to 20 Angstrom, a substantial amount of research and development is still required in a number of theoretical and experimental areas leading to the construction and operation of a 4.5-1.5 Angstrom LCLS. In this paper we report on a research and development program underway and in planning at SLAC for addressing critical questions in these areas. These include the construction and operation of a linac test stand for developing laser-driven photocathode rf guns with normalized emittances approaching 1 mm-mrad; development of advanced beam compression, stability, and emittance control techniques at multi-GeV energies; the construction and operation of a FEL Amplifier Test Experiment (FATE) for theoretical and experimental studies of SASE at IR wavelengths; an undulator development program to investigate superconducting, hybrid/permanent magnet (hybrid/PM), and pulsed-Cu technologies; theoretical and computational studies of high-gain FEL physics and LCLS component designs; development of X-ray optics and instrumentation for extracting, modulating, and delivering photons to experimental users; and the study and development of scientific experiments made possible by the source properties of the LCLS.
