Microbunch Amplification in the European XFEL


Linac-based X-ray-free-electron lasers (XFELs) require very short bunches of highbrightness electron beams with peak currents of the order of kilo-Amperes. These bunches cannot be produced directly in guns because space charge forces would destroy the brilliance within a short distance [1]. Increasing bunch peak currents with longitudinal compression at… (More)
