ABSTRACT
Advances in the physics and technology of photo-injectors, linear accelerators, insertion devices and free-electron lasers make it now possible to generate coherent radiation in the x-ray region by means of the Self-Amplified-Spontaneous-Emission (SASE) process. This radiation has much higher brightness, shorter pulses and coherence than present 3rd generation sources. The status of the physics and technology involved in a radiation source based on SASE is reviewed. The design status of a 1.5 Å SASE-FEL at SLAC, called the Linac Coherent Light Source (LCLS), is described. © 2000 American Institute of Physics.

    The properties of the coherent x-ray transition radiation (CXTR) produced by intense, short electron beams microbunched in various devices, with periods corresponding to x-ray wavelengths ∼0.02–14 nm and with modulation indices ∼0.001–1, are investigated theoretically....

    In this paper, we propose a scheme to generate tunable multi-color attosecond coherent x-ray radiation. This scheme uses a modulation compression method to generate a multi-spike prebunched kilo-ampere peak current electron beam from a few tens ampere electron beam out of a linac. Such a beam...

    For understanding on basic radiation mechanism of the high-gain FEL based on SASE, the author presents electron-crystal interpretation of FEL radiation. In the electron-crystal, electrons are localized at regularly spaced multi-layers, which represents micro-bunching, whose spacing is equal to...

    High intensity x-ray beams are used in a wide variety of applications in solid-state physics, medicine, biology and material sciences. Synchrotron radiation (SR) is currently the primary, high-quality x-ray source that satisfies both brilliance and tunability. The high cost, large size and low...
