Phase space simulations of the Novosibirsk/SELENE FEL
MetadataShow full item record
SELENE (SpacE Laser ENEergy) is a proposal to use a free electron laser (FEL) as a ground-based power source for several space applications. An advanced FEL utilizing a multisection optical klystron coupled to a single pass radiator has been suggested. Phase space simulations show electron bunching at low optical power in the klystron oscillator, leading to high gain in the single pass radiator.
