Generating Intense Attosecond X-Ray Pulses Using Ultraviolet-Laser-Induced Microbunching in Electron Beams

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

We propose a scheme that combines the echo-enabled harmonic generation technique with the bunch compression and allows to generate harmonic numbers of a few hundred in a microbunched beam through up-conversion of the frequency of an ultraviolet seed laser. Sending this beam through a short undulator results in an isolated sub-100 attoseconds pulse of x-ray radiation. Using a representative realistic set of parameters, we show that 1 nm x-ray pulse with peak power exceeding 100 MW and duration as short as 34 attoseconds (FWHM) can be generated from a 200 nm ultraviolet seed laser.
