Interference in spectrum of radiation from doubly scattered charged particle

Existence of different types of interference in the spectrum of radiation emitted by a doubly hard scattered electron is demonstrated. The spectrum develops oscillations in two regions: the hard, where the oscillations depend on the electron Lorentz factor, and the soft, where the oscillations depend on the electron scattering angles. This interference pattern owes to the presence of jetlike radiation configurations, formed by a piecewise-rectilinearly moving electron and the accompanying photon. The corresponding nondipole decomposition relation is derived. Notions describing proper field formation and interference, and presumably being applicable more generally, are discussed in detail.

A detailed thermal analysis of a Niobium (Nb) based superconducting radio frequency (SRF) cavity in a liquid helium bath is presented, taking into account the temperature and magnetic field dependence of the surface resistance and thermal conductivity in the superconducting state of the starting Nb material with different impurity levels. The drop in SRF cavity quality factor (Q_0) in the high acceleration gradient regime (before ultimate breakdown of the SRF cavity) is studied in details. It is argued that the high field Q_0-drop in SRF cavity is considerably influenced by the material parameters such as electrical conductivity, and thermal diffusivity. Read More

This letter reports the successful use of feedback from a spin polarization measurement to the revolution frequency of a 0.97 GeV/$c$ bunched and polarized deuteron beam in the Cooler Synchrotron (COSY) storage ring in order to control both the precession rate ($\approx 121$ kHz) and the phase of the horizontal polarization component. Real time synchronization with a radio frequency (rf) solenoid made possible the rotation of the polarization out of the horizontal plane, yielding a demonstration of the feedback method to manipulate the polarization.

The laser-plasma accelerator has attracted great interest for constituting an alternative in the production of the relativistic electron beams of high peak current. But the generated electron beam has poor monochrome and emittance, which make it difficult to produce high brightness radiation. Here we propose a compact flexible laser undulator based on ponderomotive force to constitute a millimeter-sized synchrotron radiation source of X-ray. Read More

Instruments to visualize transient structural changes of inhomogeneous materials on the nanometer scale with atomic spatial and temporal resolution are demanded to advance materials science, bioscience, and fusion sciences. One such technique is femtosecond electron microdiffraction, in which a short pulse of electrons with femtosecond-scale duration is focused into a micron-scale spot and used to obtain diffraction images to resolve ultrafast structural dynamics over localized crystalline domain. In this letter, we report the experimental demonstration of time-resolved mega-electron-volt electron microdiffraction which achieves a 5 {\mu}m root-mean-square (rms) beam size on the sample and a 100 fs rms temporal resolution.

We present a muon capture front-end scheme for muon based applications. In this Front-End design, a proton bunch strikes a target and creates secondary pions that drift into a capture channel, decaying into muons. A series of rf cavities forms the resulting muon beams into a series of bunches of differerent energies, aligns the bunches to equal central energies, and initiates ionization cooling. Read More

We present an overview of the performance of the Neutralized Drift Compression Experiment-II (NDCX-II) accelerator at Berkeley Lab, and report on recent target experiments on beam driven melting and transmission ion energy loss measurements with nanosecond and millimeter-scale ion beam pulses and thin tin foils. Bunches with around 10^11 ions, 1-mm radius, and 2-30 ns FWHM duration have been created with corresponding fluences in the range of 0.1 to 0. Read More

In this talk, I introduce the proposed next superconducting radio-frequency (SRF) technologies that will make it possible to achieve much higher accelerating electric field than the present SRF technologies. Audiences are assumed to be non-experts. We start from a brief review of basics of SRF, history of the high gradient technologies and the layered structure behind it. Read More

We propose a new scheme for high gain harmonic generation free electron lasers (HGHG FELs), which is seeded by a pair of intersecting laser beams to interact with an electron beam in a modulator undulator located in a dispersive section. The interference of the laser beams gives rise to a two-dimensional modulation in the energy-time phase space because of a strong correlation between the electron energy and the position in the direction of dispersion. This eventually forms pseudo energy bands in the electron beam, which results in efficient harmonic generation in HGHG FELs in a similar manner to the well-known scheme using the echo effects, with the requirement on the energy modulation being much more relaxed.

The temporal resolution of sub-relativistic ultrafast electron diffraction (UED) is generally limited by RF phase jitter of the radio frequency lenses that are used to compress the electron pulses. We theoretically show how to circumvent this limitation by using a combination of several radio frequency (RF) compression cavities. We show that if powered by the same RF source and with a proper choice of RF field strengths, RF phases and distances between the cavities the combined jitter due to the cavities at the compression point is cancelled.
