Synchrotron light sources and X-ray free-electron-lasers

  title={Synchrotron light sources and X-ray free-electron-lasers},
  author={Eduard Prat},
Synchrotron light sources and X-ray free-electron laser (FEL) facilities are unique tools providing extremely brilliant X-rays that allow the observation of matter with atomic spatial resolution. On the one hand, synchrotron light sources consist of electron circular accelerators and produce synchrotron radiation in bending magnets and undulators. On the other hand, X-ray FEL facilities are based on electron linear accelerators and generate more coherent and shorter pulses suitable for time… Expand


Hard X-ray free-electron laser with femtosecond-scale timing jitter
The hard X-ray free-electron laser at the Pohang Accelerator Laboratory (PAL-XFEL) in the Republic of Korea achieved saturation of a 0.144 nm free-electron laser beam on 27 November 2016, making itExpand
Synchrotron radiation: A continuing revolution in X-ray science—Diffraction limited storage rings and beyond
Abstract Electron spectroscopy and the investigation of the electronic properties of matter have been largely impacted by the development of synchrotron radiation sources providing highly brilliant,Expand
Experimental demonstration of a soft x-ray self-seeded free-electron laser.
The Linac Coherent Light Source has added a self-seeding capability to the soft x-ray range using a grating monochromator system, which can deliver as much as 50-fold higher brightness to users. Expand
Multi-bend Achromat Lattices for Storage Ring Light Sources
One of the most important factors for synchrotron radiation research is the brilliance, typically defined as photon flux emitted into a unit solid angle from a unit source size within a definedExpand
Characteristics of synchrotron radiation
Synchrotron radiation is having a very significant impact on the many disciplines that make use of the radiation in the x-ray, vacuum ultraviolet, and infra-red regions of the spectrum. The rapidlyExpand
X-ray FEL with a meV bandwidth
Abstract A new design for a single pass X-ray Self-Amplified Spontaneous Emission (SASE) FEL was proposed by Feldhaus et al. (Opt. Commun. 140 (1997) 341) and named “two-stage SASE FEL”. The schemeExpand
Possible application of X-ray optical elements for reducing the spectral bandwidth of an X-ray SASE FEL
Abstract A new design for a single pass X-ray Self-Amplified Spontaneous Emission (SASE) FEL is proposed. The scheme consists of two undulators and an X-ray monochromator located between them. TheExpand
First lasing and operation of an ångstrom-wavelength free-electron laser
The Linac Coherent Light Source free-electron laser has now achieved coherent X-ray generation down to a wavelength of 1.2 A and at a brightness that is nearly ten orders of magnitude higher thanExpand
Nonlinear collective effects in photon-photon and photon-plasma interactions
Strong-field effects in laboratory and astrophysical plasmas and high intensity laser and cavity systems are considered, related to quantum electrodynamical (QED) photon-photon scattering. CurrentExpand
