Title: Design of a crystalline undulator based on patterning by tensile Si{sub 3}N{sub 4} strips on a Si crystal

Abstract

A crystalline undulator consists of a crystal with a periodic deformation in which channeled particles undergo oscillations and emit coherent undulator radiation. Patterning by an alternate series of tensile Si{sub 3}N{sub 4} strips on a Si crystal is shown to be a tractable method to construct a crystalline undulator. The method allows periodic deformation of the crystal with the parameters suitable for implementation of a crystalline undulator. The resulting periodic deformation is present in the bulk of the Si crystal with an essentially uniform amplitude, making the entire volume of the crystal available for channeling and in turn for emission of undulator radiation.
