Abstract

Building on the general theory of free-electron laser oscillators discussed in Chap. 9, we discuss the simulation of free-electron laser oscillators in this chapter. This involves using the simulation procedures discussed in Chap. 6 to simulate the interaction in the wiggler in concert with an optics propagation code to simulate the propagation of the optical field through the resonator. General features of the procedure are discussed, and examples showing the validation of the process are provided.
