Microbunching Instability Effect Studies and Laser Heater Optimization for the SPARX FEL Accelerator
- Author(s): Vaccarezza, C.
- et al.
The effects of microbunching instability for the SPARX accelerator have been analyzed by means of numerical simulations. The laser heater counteracting action has been addressed in order to optimize the parameters of the compression system, either hybrid RF plus magnetic chicane or only magnetic, and possibly enhance the FEL performance.
