Title A Compact, Modular Electron Beam Delay Line for Use in Novel Free-Electron Laser Schemes
Abstract Two Free-Electron Laser (FEL) schemes have been proposed, for the generation of attosecond pulse trains* and for the improvement of the longitudinal coherence of SASE FELs**, in which repeated electron delays are implemented within the undulator lattice. To obtain the maximum performance and flexibility from these schemes it is advantageous to use an electron delay line that satisfies the isochronicity conditions, as well as being compact, modular and, ideally, variable. In this paper we present initial designs for such a system, along with simulations of its performance. We investigate both in-undulator and out-of-undulator designs, and compare the applicability of each for various aspects of the FEL design, as well as commenting on the mechanical and magnetic implications of the schemes.
