Beam Conditioning for Free Electron Lasers
Prof. Jonathan Wurtele, UC Berkeley & KITP

The manipulation of beam phase space has been proposed as a method to overcome the degradation of FEL performance from beam emittance (transverse beam temperature). Consequences of beam conditioning, could it realized, include a significant reduction (factor of ~2) in beam energy needed for FELs to reach hard x-ray wavelengths. The theory of beam conditioning will be presented along with a discussion of difficulties and possible methods to realize it.
