Integrated Modeling of the TESLA X-ray FEL

The TESLA linear collider incorporates an X-ray SASE FEL which demands challenging electron beam parameters (typically transverse emittance of 1.6 mm-mrd and peak current of 5 kA). For a realistic electron beam distribution at the entrance of the undulator, tracking has to be done from the cathode through the whole accelerator. Non-Gaussian beam profiles… CONTINUE READING
