Title Puffin: A three dimensional, unaveraged free electron laser simulation code
Abstract An unaveraged 3D model of the free electron laser (FEL) is presented which is capable of modelling electron interactions with broad bandwidth radiation that includes electron beam shot-noise and coherent spontaneous emission effects. Non-localised electron transport throughout the beam is modelled self-consistently allowing better modelling of systems where a larger electron energy range is required. The FEL interaction can be modelled with undulator fields of variable polarisation. A modular undulator system allows insertion of other magnetic structures, such as chicanes. A set of working equations that describe the model are derived, the parallel numerical method that solves them described, and some example FEL interactions presented.
