The free-electron laser FLASH at DESY can produce SASE-FEL pulses in the extreme ultraviolet to the soft X-ray region. The flexibility of the variable gap undulators in the FLASH2 beamline opens a wide range of scientific opportunities. Different advanced lasing schemes have been tested in the past years, like the frequency doubler scheme, two-color lasing, and ``harmonic lasing...

In Self-Amplified Spontaneous Emission Free Electron Laser (SASE FEL) based short-pulse schemes, pulse duration is limited by FEL coherence time. For hard X-ray FELs, coherence time is in a few hundred attosecond range while for XUV and soft X-ray FELs it is in the femtosecond regime. In this paper the modification of so-called chirp-taper scheme is developed that allows to overcome the...

X-ray free-electron lasers (FELs) rely on SASE due to the lack of seed lasers and the difficulty in obtaining mirrors. Progress in diamond crystal Bragg mirrors enables the design of x-ray FEL oscillators. Regenerative amplifiers (RAFELs) are high gain/low-Q oscillators that out-couple most of the optical power. An x-ray RAFEL based on the LCLS-II at SLAC using a six-mirror resonator...

This paper provides a summary of the analyses that led to the definition of the 2-color upgrade of the IR FEL at FHI Berlin. We briefly cover several different aspects of the design, beginning with the beam dynamics of the second far-IR beamline, engineering considerations of that physics design, and the FEL physics that defined the short-Rayleigh range undulator as well as aspects of the...

Free-electron lasers (FELs) operate at wavelengths from millimeter waves through hard x-rays. At x-ray wavelengths, FELs typically rely on self-amplified spontaneous emission SASE emission which contains multiple temporal “spikes” that limit the longitudinal coherence of the optical output; hence, alternate methods that improve on the longitudinal coherence of the SASE emission are of...

THz free electron laser at SANKEN, Osaka university generates a train of THz pulses with the interval of 27 MHz in the repetition of 5 Hz. The number of pulses in a train is about 100. Single pulse energy exceeds 200 \muJ at the carrier frequency of 4.5 THz.

The typical layout adopted in a seeded harmonic generation free-electron laser is based on radiator undulators placed immediately after the dispersive section, where the bunching is created.

A major challenge in single-linac - multiple undulator setups like EuXFEL is the generation of individual shaped photon pulses, in particular, when working in a mode where a single pulse train, or cw stream, feeds all undulator lines.

We propose a computationally-efficient algorithm to calculate the field of partially coherent synchrotron radiation pulses from undulators. Wavefront propagation simulations play a pivotal role in designing beamline optics at new synchrotron radiation sources. However, they do not account for the stochastic behaviour of the initial radiation field, which is due to shot noise in the electron...

We (PAL-XFEL) have improved the PAL-XFEL performances remarkably since the user-service operation in 2017. We achieved the self-seeded XFEL with a peak brightness of 3.2 × 10^35, the highest to date, and reached a SASE FEL intensity of 3.2 mJ due to the improved beam emittance of 0.3 mm-mrad. The statistics of the SASE FEL intensities over the past three years show that the SASE FEL...

Laser-induced breakdown has been observed in various combination of gases and lasers.

We have observed...

The European XFEL operates with 3 different SASE FELs served by variable gap undulators. In addition, the electron energy of the superconducting linear accelerator is varied between 8.5 and 16.5 GeV to cover a photon energy range from 500 eV to 30 keV. We will present SASE performance data collected over the past 5 years of operation and compare them with theoretical predictions.

The SACLA linear accelerator has been successfully used as a full-energy injector of the SPring-8 storage ring since 2020. In order to perform the beam injection in parallel with XFEL operation, three accelerators are virtually constructed in a control system. Thus the electron beam parameters, such as the beam energy, are independently tuned for the beam injection and the two XFEL beamlines....

More and more high-gain SASE FELs operate at high repetition rates, either in burst or in continuous wave mode of operation, offering an unprecedented number of electron bunches per second. External seeding techniques provide high quality FEL pulses of full coherence and shot-to-shot stability but cannot keep up with MHz repetition rates of such FELs due to their dependence on the seed laser...

Infrared FEL oscillators generally use hole-coupling to extract intracavity laser power. The hole-coupling inherently causes a non-Gaussian beam profile at user stations, which are more than 10 m apart from the coupling hole. It is due to the existence of the Airy pattern in the extracted laser beam. We demonstrated that the beam profile can be changed from a non-Gaussian to a nearly Gaussian...

Free-electron lasers (FELs) produce different optical polarizations including linear, elliptic and circular polarizations corresponding to the polarizations of the undulators used. X-ray FELs depend upon long undulator lines consisting of a sequence of short undulators. Linearly polarized undulators are most commonly used; hence the optical output is linearly polarized. Elliptic or circular...
