VISA (Visible to Infrared SASE Amplifier) is an FEL (Free Electron Laser) designed to saturate at a radiation wavelength of 800 nm within a 4-m long, strong focusing undulator. Large gain is achieved by driving the FEL with the 72 MeV, high brightness beam of BNL's Accelerator Test Facility (ATF). We present measurements that demonstrate saturation in(More)
—This paper presents a new type of control scheme and device for controlling gas flow into semiconductor process chambers. The key component of the Gas Flow Controller (GFC) is a high-precision valve with an integrated position sensor, which is used to maintain a constant flow rate. A map lookup scheme is employed to adjust the valve position to accommodate(More)
Nonlinear harmonic radiation was observed using the VISA self-amplified, spontaneous emission (SASE) free-electron laser (FEL) at saturation. The gain lengths, spectra, and energies of the three lowest SASE FEL modes were experimentally characterized. The measured nonlinear harmonic gain lengths and center spectral wavelengths decrease with harmonic number,(More)
The self-amplified, spontaneous emission free-electron laser (SASE FEL) gain process is a collective instability which induces microbunching in the electron beam. Micro-bunching approaching unity at the fundamental FEL wavelength (845 nm), and its second harmonic, have been measured at the VISA FEL, at or near saturation. These measurements, which use the(More)
VISA (Visible to Infrared SASE Amplifier) is an FEL designed to obtain high gain at a radiation wavelength of 800 nm. Large gain is achieved by driving the FEL with the 71 MeV, high brightness beam of the Accelerator Test Facility (ATF) and using a novel, strong focusing, 4 m long undulator with a gap of 6 mm and a period of 1.8 cm. We report measurements(More)
