Title Alternative Electron Beam Slicing Methods for CLARA and X-ray FELs
Abstract Methods to generate ultra-short radiation pulses from X-ray FELs commonly slice a relatively long electron bunch to feature one (or more) short regions of higher beam quality which then lase preferentially. The slotted foil approach spoils the emittance of all but a short region, while laser-based alternatives modulate the electron beam energy, improving potential synchronisation to external sources. The CLARA FEL test facility under development in the UK will operate at 100-400 nm, aiming to demonstrate FEL schemes applicable at X-ray wavelengths. We present new laser-based slicing schemes which may better suit the wavelength range of CLARA and provide options for X-ray facilities.
