Title: Dispersion-Based Fresh-Slice Scheme for Free-Electron Lasers

Abstract

The fresh-slice technique improved the performance of several self-amplified spontaneous emission free-electron laser schemes by granting selective control on the temporal lasing slice without spoiling the other electron bunch slices. So far, the implementation has required a special insertion device to create the beam yaw, called a dechirper. Finally, we demonstrate a novel scheme to enable fresh-slice operation based on electron energy chirp and orbit dispersion that can be implemented at any free-electron laser facility without additional hardware.

FIG. 1. FIG. 1.: a) Schematic experimental setup for the LCLS. The electrons coming from the linac (left) are over-compressed in the last bunch compressor, followed by the last linac section adding both energy and chirp, which is followed by the dogleg, containing two tweaker quadrupole magnets (magenta) to control dispersion, followedmore » by an orbit bump (blue) and the undulators (red/black). A transverse deflector following spectrometer allows direct longitudinal phase space measurements. b): Dispersion (filled, gray) within the undulator with 4 different selected orbits leading to selective lasing within the electron beams shown in c). Electron beam energy: 10.1 GeV, charge: 185 pC.« less
