Harmonic generation in the free-electron laser. II. cw calculation for the linearly polarized wiggler Academic Article uri icon


  • Harmonic generation in the free-electron laser offers a possible means to extend the wavelength range of the device towards high frequency. Numerical solutions to the basic equations describing this process are shown for cw operation using a linearly polarized wiggler. Higher harmonic emission becomes enhanced as the magnetic field is increased and as the energy spread in the electron beam is reduced. 1982 The American Physical Society.
