Title: Generation of ellipsoidal beam through 3D pulse shaping for a photoinjector drive laser.

Abstract

Due to the linear space-charge force, an ellipsoidal beam is expected to have much smaller emittance in comparison with beams of other geometries, which is critical for many accelerator applications. Up to now, no practical way of generating such beams is available. In this paper we present a few schemes for 3-D laser pulse shaping that can be used to generate ellipsoidal laser pulses that in turn can be applied for generating ellipsoidal electron bunches from a photoinjector. Our simulations show that 3D laser pulse shaping can be realized through laser phase tailoring in combination with properly designed refractive and diffractive optics. Performance of an electron beam generated from such shaped laser pulses is compared with that of the ideal flat-topped and Gaussian electron bunches by numerical simulation, showing improvement in both beam dynamics and performance.
