Abstract:

To investigate the effect of energy spread, emittance, laser pulse shape and misalignment on x-rays generated by Thomson backscattering using lasers as undulators, and their applications. To address compact FEL issues. Formulate Thomson, also known as Compton, backscattered radiation for an electron beam with energy spread and finite emittance, laser undulator of arbitrary pulse shape and misalignment. This formulation is to be implemented on the computer. The computer code will be applied to a variety of experimental configurations including Vanderbilt and Duke FEL parameters. We will also evaluate other configurations and medical applications. For FELs to become a widely utilized laser source, they must become more compact, less expensive, and more user friendly.
