Fundamentals of Accelerators for Single-Pass Free Electron Lasers

  • Alfredo Luccio
Part of the Ettore Majorana International Science Series book series (SLAP, volume 49)


The characteristics of electron accelerators suitable for single pass free electron lasers are discussed. In particular, their beam qualities: energy, energy spread, current, emittance and bunch time structure are considered, in general and on a few examples. The matching of an electron beam to a tapered wiggler is finally dealt with in some detail.
