Generation of ultra-large-bandwidth X-ray free-electron-laser pulses with a transverse-gradient undulator

Abstract

A new and simple method to generate X-ray free-electron-laser radiation with unprecedented spectral bandwidth above the 10% level is presented. The broad bandwidth is achieved by sending a transversely tilted beam through a transverse-gradient undulator. The extent of the bandwidth can easily be controlled by variation of the beam tilt or the undulator… (More)
