Title: Light transport and amplification for a proof-of-principle experiment of Optical Stochastic Cooling

Abstract

The Optical Stochastic Cooling (OSC) is a proposed technique that holds promise for the cooling of heavy-ions and dense TeV scale hadron beams. In the OSC a particle radiates a short wave-packet in an upstream "pickup" undulator and is made to interact with its own radiation in a downstream "kicker" undulator providing a corrective energy kick. In this thesis we present formulas and wave-optics simulations to compute the single-particle kick amplitude. The wave-optics simulations are further used to model amplification of the pickup radiation in a solid-state gain medium. This research was carried out in preparation of a proof-of-principle demonstration of the OSC in Fermilab's Integrable Optics Test Accelerator (IOTA) using 100 MeV electrons.
