Laser-electron Storage Ring Laser-electron Storage Ring

  title={Laser-electron Storage Ring Laser-electron Storage Ring},
  author={Ronald D. Ruth},
A compact laser-electron storage ring (LESR) is proposed for electron beam cooling or x-ray generation. The LESR uses an intense laser pulse stored in a highnesse resonator to interact repetitively with a circulating electron beam in the energy range from a few MeV to a few hundred MeV. The rapid damping caused by laser-electron interaction counterbalances the intrabeam scattering e ect, thus allowing electron beams with relatively low energy to be cooled or stabilized in the storage ring to… CONTINUE READING
