Abstract:

When a relativistic electron beam mobes through a linearly polarized magnetic wiggler it exhibits betatron oscillations along the direction perpendicular to the motion. There is also a small defocusing effect along the transverse direction because of space charge repulsion. In our case with a low emittance electron beam, computer simulation shows a negligible increase in emittance, although the phase space in the transverse plane may vary greatly from period to period because of the betatron effect.
