Free-Electron Lasers is a survey work suitable for a free-electron laser course at the graduate level and for workers new to the field coming from laser, accelerator, or other backgrounds.
Introduces free-electron lasers and electron accelerators**Contains useful references for basic formulas, which can be a starting point for research
"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.
A brief, but excellent, survey of the history, principles, technology, and applications of free-electron lasers introduces the reader to this rapidly developing field...The book emphasises low-gain free-electron laser oscillators. It concentrates on a classical mechanics treatment rather than a quantum mechanical one. Since the most common source of electrons for free-electron lasers in the optical regime has been the RF linac, detailed discussion of electron accelerators is limited to RF linacs...an extremely interseting and well written book...Libraries, researchers, graduate, and advanced undergraduate students with an interest in free-electron lasers, synchrotron radiation sources and electron accelerators will also want to acquire a copy ofthis useful text.
