Radiofrequency Superconductivity Applied to Free-Electron Lasers

  • Stephen V. Benson
  • Published 2008


Low wall losses and low wakefields inherent in superconducting radiofrequency (srf) cavities make them attractive candidates for accelerators that operate efficiently at high continuous-wave (cw) gradients. Such accelerators are desirable for free-electron lasers (FELs) that extract high-power cw light from a high-average-current electron beam, or that… (More)
