Laser-plasma based accelerator has the potential to dramatically reduce the size and cost of future x-ray light sources to the university-laboratory scale. However, the large energy spread of the laser-plasma accelerated electron beam may hinder the way for short wavelength free-electron laser generation. In this paper, we propose a novel method for(More)
DOI: 10.1002/adma.201404134 The Shanghai Synchrotron Radiation Facility (SSRF, or Shanghai Lightsource) is a new third-generation synchrotron radiation source with extremely bright X-rays. SSRF was founded in 2004 and opened for public use in 2009. Since its opening, it has been one of the major players in the synchrotron club.[1,2] At present, SSRF is the(More)
Removal of the undesired time-energy correlations in the electron beam is of paramount importance for efficient lasing of a high-gain free-electron laser. Recently, it has been theoretically and experimentally demonstrated that the longitudinal wakefield excited by the electrons themselves in a corrugated structure allows for precise control of the electron(More)
High quality electron beams with flat distributions in both energy and current are critical for many accelerator-based scientific facilities such as free-electron lasers and MeV ultrafast electron diffraction and microscopes. In this Letter, we report on using corrugated structures to compensate for the beam nonlinear energy chirp imprinted by the curvature(More)
All-optical ideas provide a potential to dramatically cut off the size and cost of x-ray light sources to the university-laboratory scale, with the combination of the laser-plasma accelerator and the laser undulator. However, the large longitudinal energy spread of the electron beam from laser-plasma accelerator may hinder the way to high brightness of(More)
Generation of ultrashort coherent radiation pulses in the extreme ultraviolet (EUV) and x-ray regime is of remarkable interest in the synchrotron radiation user community. In this work, a novel technique is proposed for directly imprinting strong coherent microbunching on the electron beam with very small laser-induced energy spread. Theoretical analysis(More)
