Long wavelength end-effect undulator radiation (Transition Undulator Radiation)

Description: As first pointed out by K.-J. Kim, undulator radiation contains a broad-band component in the long wavelength region. This radiation is due to the change in longitudinal velocity of an electron upon entering and leaving an undulator. The radiation pattern is a hollow cone, peaked in the forward direction, with an opening angle of approximately 1/{gamma}, with a spectrum covering a wide range, including the infra-red and the visible. The radiation is radially polarized, analogous to transition radiation, and exhibits interference effects between the entrance and exit ends of the undulator, similar to the interference effects observed for transition radiation from a thin slab of material. A straightforward application of formulas from Jackson ({ital Classical Electrodynamics}) results in a closed form exact expression for the low frequency limit of this novel radiation effect, Transition Undulator Radiation or TUR. 3 refs., 3 figs.

Some practical aspects of undulator radiation properties

Description: It is important to be able to accurately predict the spectral and angular distribution of undulator radiation properties when designing beamlines; at new synchrotron radiation facilities or when performing radiation experiments at already existing beamlines. In practice, the particle beam emittance and beam energy spread must be taken into account in modeling these properties. The undulators fabricated today are made with small RMS phase errors, making them perform almost as, ideal devices. Calculation tools for numerical modeling of undulator radiation sources (ideal and nonideal) will be discussed, and the excellent agreement with experimentally obtained absolute spectral flux measurements of undulator A at the Advanced Photon Source verifies the high accuracy of the computer codes and the high quality of the undulators being built today. Our focus here is on flux properties useful in practical beamline designs, and the chosen examples demonstrate the versatility of computer programs available to beamline designers and experimentalists.

Energy and angular distributions of radiation power from bending magnet and wiggler sources at a 6-GeV ring

Description: In order to design radiation ports and beam line components, it is essential to understand the distribution of power from a radiation source as a function of both the photon energy and the solid angle of emission. In this preliminary note, we assemble all the formula involved for the case of a bending magnet and a wiggler. Typical distributions are presented for the case of 6-Gev radiation.

Observation of SASE at 47 {mu}m

Description: Coherent, far-infrared undulator radiation from sub-picosecond electron pulses has been observed at the Stanford SUNSHINE facility. Measured intensities exceed theoretical prediction for spontaneous radiation by more than an order of magnitude. The forward-radiated energy from a 16MeV electron beam traveling in a single pass through an undulator with a strength parameter K = 0.6 grows exponentially and is consistent with predictions of Self-Amplified Spontaneous Emission (SASE) with a gain length of 45.4cm or 5.9 undulator periods.

Synchrotron radiation from protons

Description: Synchrotron radiation from protons, though described by the same equations as the radiation from electrons, exhibits a number of interesting features on account of the parameters reached in praxis. In this presentation, we shall point out some of the features relating to (i) normal synchrotron radiation from dipoles in proton machines such as the High Energy Booster and the Superconducting Super Collider; (ii) synchrotron radiation from short dipoles, and its application to light monitors for proton machines, and (iii) synchrotron radiation from undulators in the limit when, the deflection parameter is much smaller than unity. The material for this presentation is taken largely from the work of Hofmann, Coisson, Bossart, and their collaborators, and from a paper by Kim. We shall emphasize the qualitative aspects of synchrotron radiation in the cases mentioned above, making, when possible, simple arguments for estimating the spectral and angular properties of the radiation. Detailed analyses can be found in the literature.

Transition undulator radiation as bright infrared sources

Description: Undulator radiation contains, in addition to the usual component with narrow spectral features, a broad-band component in the low frequency region emitted in the near forward direction, peaked at an angle 1/{gamma}, where {gamma} is the relativistic factor. This component is referred to as the transition undulator radiation, as it is caused by the sudden change in the electron`s longitudinal velocity as it enters and leaves the undulator. The characteristics of the transition undulator radiation are analyzed and compared with the infrared radiation from the usual undulator harmonics and from bending magnets.
