Quantum theory of SASE FEL  [PDF]
R. Bonifacio,N. Piovella,G. R. M. Robb
Physics , 2005, DOI: 10.1016/j.nima.2005.01.324
Abstract: We describe a free-electron laser (FEL) in the Self Amplified Spontaneous Emission (SASE) regime quantizing the electron motion and taking into account propagation effects. We demonstrate quantum purification of the SASE spectrum, i.e., in a properly defined quantum regime the spiking behavior disappears and the SASE power spectrum becomes very narrow.
Potential of a longitudinally focusing insertion for a storage ring X-ray FEL  [PDF]
I. Agapov
Physics , 2013,
Abstract: In present work we investigate the potential of a longitudinally focusing device to compress bunches passing an undulator for a synchrotron storage ring. If integrated into a storage ring similar to PETRAIII such device could potentially produce continuous $\sim$1ps pulses of photons in the $nm$ range with peak pulse powers of tens of GW. Even without operating in FEL saturation mode the longitudinal focusing can provide means to increase the brightness and shorten the photon pulse length.

Physics , 2005, DOI: 10.1016/j.nima.2005.04.003
Abstract: In this letter we specify the physical parameters necessary to operate a SASE FEL in the quantum regime with a laser wiggler. We also show that this is more feasible in the quantum regime than in the classical one. Specific examples are given.
Technical Design Studies of TAC SASE FEL Proposal  [PDF]
B. Ketenoglu,O. Yavas,M. Tural,S. Ozkorucuklu,I. Tapan,O. Sahin,P. Arikan
Physics , 2009,
Abstract: A SASE FEL facility was first proposed in Feasibility Report of the TAC (Turkish Accelerator Center) project in 2000. Conceptual Design Report (CDR) of the project was completed in 2005. Technical Design Report (TDR) studies of TAC were started in 2006 in frame of an inter universities project with support of State Planning Organization (SPO) of Turkey. Main goal of the SASE FEL proposal is to cover VUV and soft X-rays region of the spectrum besides IR-FEL, Bremsstrahlung and Synchrotron Radiation proposals of TAC. Up to now, optimization studies based on a special RF linac or an Energy Recovery Linac (ERL) for the SASE FEL facility, were completed. Today, ERLs provide a powerful broad range of applications like: electron cooling devices, high average brightness, high power FELs, short-pulse radiation sources and high luminosity colliders. In this study, main parameters for two linac options and SASE FEL are given.
The FEL SASE operation, bunch compression and the beam heater  [PDF]
G. Dattoli,M. Labat,M. Migliorati,P. L. Ottaviani,S. Pagnutti,E. Sabia
Physics , 2010, DOI: 10.1016/j.optcom.2010.11.052
Abstract: We discuss the conditions required for an optimal SASE FEL operation when bunch compression techniques are exploited to enhance the bunch peak current. We discuss the case of velocity bunching and magnetic bunch compression. With the reference to the latter technique we provide a quantitative estimate of the amount of laser heater power necessary to suppress the micro-bunching instability without creating any problem to the SASE dynamics
Macro-particle FEL model with self-consistent spontaneous radiation  [PDF]
Vladimir N. Litvinenko
Physics , 2015,
Abstract: Spontaneous radiation plays an important role in SASE FELs and storage ring FELs operating in giant pulse mode. It defines the correlation function of the FEL radiation as well as its many spectral features. Simulations of these systems using randomly distributed macro-particles with charge much higher that of a single electron create the problem of anomalously strong spontaneous radiation, limiting the capabilities of many FEL codes. In this paper we present a self-consistent macro-particle model which provided statistically exact simulation of multi-mode, multi-harmonic and multi-frequency short-wavelength 3-D FELs including the high power and saturation effects. The use of macro-particle clones allows both spontaneous and induced radiation to be treated in the same fashion. Simulations using this model do not require a seed and provide complete temporal and spatial structure of the FEL optical field.
Statistical Analysis of Crossed Undulator for Polarization Control in a SASE FEL  [PDF]
Yuantao Ding,Zhirong Huang
Physics , 2008, DOI: 10.1103/PhysRevSTAB.11.030702
Abstract: There is a growing interest in producing intense, coherent x-ray radiation with an adjustable and arbitrary polarization state. In this paper, we study the crossed undulator scheme (K.-J. Kim, Nucl. Instrum. Methods A {\bf 445}, 329 (2000)) for rapid polarization control in a self-amplified spontaneous emission (SASE) free electron laser (FEL). Because a SASE source is a temporally chaotic light, we perform a statistical analysis on the state of polarization using FEL theory and simulations. We show that by adding a small phase shifter and a short (about 1.3 times the FEL power gain length), $90^\circ$ rotated planar undulator after the main SASE planar undulator, one can obtain circularly polarized light -- with over 80% polarization -- near the FEL saturation.
Properties of the odd harmonics of the radiation from SASE FEL with a planar undulator  [PDF]
E. L. Saldin,E. A. Schneidmiller,M. V. Yurkov
Physics , 2005,
Abstract: Recent theoretical and experimental studies have shown that Self-Amplified Spontaneous Emission Free Electron Laser (SASE FEL) with a planar undulator holds a potential for generation of relatively strong coherent radiation at the third harmonic of the fundamental frequency. Here we present detailed study of the nonlinear harmonic generation in the SASE FEL obtained with time-dependent FEL simulation code. Using similarity techniques we present universal dependencies for temporal, spectral, and statistical properties of the odd harmonics of the radiation from SASE FEL. In particular, we derived universal formulae for radiation power of the odd harmonics at saturation. It was also found that coherence time at saturation falls inversely proportional to harmonic number, and relative spectrum bandwidth remains constant with harmonic number.
Scheme for Attophysics Experiments at a X-ray SASE FEL  [PDF]
E. L. Saldin,E. A. Schneidmiller,M. V. Yurkov
Physics , 2002, DOI: 10.1016/S0030-4018(02)02008-4
Abstract: We propose a concept for production of high power coherent attosecond pulses in X-ray range. An approach is based on generation of 8th harmonic of radiation in a multistage HGHG FEL (high gain high harmonic free electron laser) configuration starting from shot noise. Single-spike phenomena occurs when electron bunch is passed through the sequence of four relatively short undulators. The first stage is a conventional "long" wavelength (0.8 nm) SASE FEL which operates in the high-gain linear regime. The 0.1 nm wavelength range is reached by successive multiplication (0.8 nm $\to$ 0.4 nm $\to$ 0.2 nm $\to$ 0.1 nm) in a stage sequence. Our study shows that the statistical properties of the high-harmonic radiation from the SASE FEL, operating in linear regime, can be used for selection of radiation pulses with a single spike in time domain. The duration of the spikes is in attosecond range. Selection of single-spike high-harmonic pulses is achieved by using a special trigger in data acquisition system. The potential of X-ray SASE FEL at TESLA at DESY for generating attosecond pulses is demonstrated. Since the design of XFEL laboratory at TESLA is based on the use of long SASE undulators with tunable gap, no special place nor additional FEL undulators are required for attophysics experiments. The use of a 10 GW-level attosecond X-ray pulses at X-ray SASE FEL facility will enable us to track processes inside atoms.
Slice emittance, projected emittance and properties of the FEL SASE radiation  [PDF]
G. Dattoli,M. Del Franco,A. Petralia,C. Ronsivalle,E. Sabia
Physics , 2010,
Abstract: The existence of a characteristic coherence length in FEL SASE Physics determines the independent lasing of different portions, namely the slices, of the electron bunch. Each slice may be characterized by different phase space properties (not necessarily equal emittances and Twiss coefficients). This fact opens new questions on the concept of beam matching and how the various portions of the beam contribute to the performances of the output radiation, including those associated with the transverse coherence.
