Abstract:

Laser operation was achieved and a series of discoveries on the operational characteristics of storage ring lasers were made including self pulsing and transverse mode coupling. the self pulsing phenomenon was observed to permit the continuous variation of the peak output power of the device. Analysis of the data taken on the optical klystron and the laser induced bunch lengthening was completed. Contents Measurement of stimulated transverse mode mixing in a free electron laser Transverse Mode dynamics in a free electron laser Measurement of the violation of the Madey Theorem induced by a diverging wave Observation of the diffraction induced violation of the Madey theorem Optical klystron experiments for the ACO storage ring free electron laser Characterization of free electron laser bunch lengthening on the ACO storage ring Inhomogeneous Broadening calculation with a single integral and Realization of a variable aperture diaphragm working in ultra high vacuum.
