An analysis of stimulated longitudinal electrostatic bremsstrahlung in a free-electron laser structure

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

An analysis of stimulated emission of radiation by an electron beam passing through a periodic longitudinal electrostatic field is presented, and its use in a free-electron laser structure is discussed. The analysis is based on a coupled-mode calculation of the interaction between a waveguided electromagnetic mode and an electron-beam plasma with finite cross section. The dispersion equation derived applies to the collective as well as the single electron regime.
