Fourier Optics treatment of Classical Relativistic Electrodynamics


In this paper we couple Synchrotron Radiation (SR) theory with a branch of physical optics, namely laser beam optics. We show that the theory of laser beams is successful in characterizing radiation fields associated with any SR source. Both radiation beam generated by an ultra-relativistic electron in a magnetic device and laser beam are solutions of the… (More)
