Abstract:

The research involved in the theoretical and numerical analysis of the physics of free electron lasers using relativistic particle beams. The major emphasis of the research was to obtain design criteria for the development of a two-stage FEL oscillator operating in the trapped particle mode, and for a UV- FEL operating in an oscillator configuration with an intense CO2 laser beam as a pumping source instead of the usual wiggler field. In order to carry out this program it is necessary to provide an appropriate model for the radiation physics of both types of FELs, to examine the relevant nonlinear wave-particle dynamics, and to model the characteristics, development and evolution of the associated electron beam.
