Start-to-End Simulations of the LCLS Accelerator and FEL Performance at Very Low Charge


The Linac Coherent Light Source (LCLS) is an x-ray Free-electron Laser (FEL) being commissioned at SLAC. Recent beam measurements have shown that, using the LCLS injector-linac-compressors, the beam emittance is very small at 20 pC. In this paper we perform start-to-end simulations of the entire accelerator including the FEL undulator and study the FEL… (More)
