Dynamics of the pulsed free-electron laser Academic Article uri icon


  • Calculations of coherent picosecond pulse propagation in the free-electron laser are presented, based on a theory directly coupling the Maxwell and single-particle equations. Good agreement is obtained with data of the Stanford experiment, such as the power-tuning curve and the electron energy distribution. 1980.
