RF Parasitic Oscillations in High Power FELs


Summary form only given. The FEL dispersion equation always has two solutions. Radiation at the low frequency (RF) is always excited concurrently with the desired high frequency (IR) radiation. At high beam current levels the low frequency radiation may develop into parasitic oscillation, that would accelerate/decelerate the e-beam bunches in the wiggler… (More)
