Emission of photons by undulators

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access

Abstract

Relativistic electrons subjected to periodic acceleration in an undulator (planar or helical) emit quasi-monochromatic synchrotron radiation, which is tunable and polarized. Such emissions have been observed previously in e beams accelerated in linear accelerators or synchrotrons. Synchrotron radiation laboratories are developing undulators, which will constitute exceptional photon sources when placed on storage rings: their brightness is expected to be several orders of magnitude greater than the brightness of the same e beam in normal bending magnets, and, depending upon the e energy, they can be tuned from the visible to the x-ray range. Recent experiments on storage rings show that the observed emission agrees with theoretical predictions.
