Collider-Accelerator Department, Brookhaven National Laboratory(Dated: May 3, 2011)Free-electron lasers play an increasing role in science, from generating unique femtosecond X-ray pulses for single short recording of the protein structures to amplifying feeble interactions inadvanced cooling systems for high-energy hadron colliders. While modern Free-electron laser codescan describe their amplification mechanism, a deep analytical understanding of the mechanism isof extreme importance for a…

Linear dispersion theory of parallel electromagnetic modes for regularized Kappa-distributions

The velocity particle distributions measured in-situ in space plasmas deviate from Maxwellian (thermal) equilibrium, showing enhanced suprathermal tails which are well described by the standard

The κ-cookbook: a novel generalizing approach to unify κ-like distributions for plasma particle modelling

In the literature different so-called $\kappa$-distribution functions are discussed to fit and model the velocity (or energy) distributions of solar wind species, pickup ions or magnetospheric

Entropy of plasmas described with regularized κ distributions

In classical thermodynamics the entropy is an extensive quantity, i.e.\ the sum of the entropies of two subsystems in equilibrium with each other is equal to the entropy of the full system consisting

Stimulated Emission of Bremsstrahlung in a Periodic Magnetic Field

The Weizsacker‐Williams method is used to calculate the gain due to the induced emission of radiation into a single electromagnetic mode parallel to the motion of a relativistic electron through a

GENERATING OF COHERENT RADIATION BY A RELATIVISTIC ELECTRON BEAM IN AN ONDULATOR

A detailed study of the self-modulation of a relativistic electron beam in an ondulator in the single-pass regime is carried out. Beam-parameter conditions are obtained under which the radiative

Stimulated emission from relativistic electrons passing through a spatially periodic transverse magnetic field

Stimulated emission from a relativistic beam of electrons passing through a spatially periodic right-hand circularly polarized magnetic field is considered. The amplification is found to be due to a

Electrostatic Instabilities of a Uniform Non‐Maxwellian Plasma

A stability criterion is obtained starting from Vlasov's collision‐free kinetic equations. Possible instabilities propagating parallel to an arbitrary unit vector e are related to a function

THE KINEMATICS OF GROWING WAVES

This paper is concerned with the problem of distinguishing between amplifying and evanescent waves. These have, in the past, been distinguished by considerations of energy transfer or of the initial
