Beam envelope calculations in general linear coupled lattices
Abstract
The envelope equations and Twiss parameters (β and α) provide important bases for uncoupled linear beam dynamics. For sophisticated beam manipulations, however, coupling elements between two transverse planes are intentionally introduced. The recently developed generalized CourantSnyder theory offers an effective way of describing the linear beam dynamics in such coupled systems with a remarkably similar mathematical structure to the original CourantSnyder theory. In this work, we present numerical solutions to the symmetrized matrix envelope equation for β which removes the gauge freedom in the matrix envelope equation for w. Furthermore, we construct the transfer and beam matrices in terms of the generalized Twiss parameters, which enables calculation of the beam envelopes in arbitrary linear coupled systems.

We report the discovery of an envelope Hamiltonian describing the chargedparticle dynamics in general linear coupled lattices.

Envelope function calculations of linear and nonlinear gains in a strainedlayer quantumwell laser
In this article, the authors study theoretically the linear and the nonlinear optical gains of strainedlayer InGaAsAlGaAs quantum well lasers with band mixing effects taken into account. Effects of the biaxial compressive strain of the InGaAsAlGaAs quantum well on the band structure are investigated by solving for the PikusBir Hamiltonian. The biaxial compressive strain separates the HH and the LH subbands by pulling down the HH subbands and pushing away the LH subbands from the valence band edge. Since the CHH transition is dominated by the TE polarization they expect that the TE mode gain would be substantially larger thanmore » 
Precision matched solution of the coupled beam envelope equations for a periodic quadrupole lattice with space charge
The coupled KapchinskijVladimirskij (KV) envelope equations for a charged particle beam transported by a periodic system of quadrupoles with selfconsistent space charge force have previously been solved by various approximate methods, with accuracy ranging from 1% to 10%. A new method of solution is introduced here, which is based on a double expansion of the beam envelope functions in powers of the focal strength and either the beam's emittance or its dimensionless perveance. This method results in accuracy better than 0.1% for typical lattice and beam parameters when carried through one consistent level of approximation higher than employed in previousmore »
