A superconducting undulator at the 500 MeV RF-gun driven linac-recirculator at MAX-lab

Abstract
MAX-lab is replacing its microtron injector with a RF-gun driven 500 MeV recirculator linac (250 MeV linac with one recirculation). The linac will later be equipped with a low emittance laser gun. In this paper, a future installation of a superconducting undulator driven by the recirculator beam is discussed. The undulator is characterised by the emission of spontaneous undulator radiation. The light pulses from the spontaneous undulator radiation are relatively short, on the order of 1 ps, and there may be some experimental applications of the emitted light. In a later stage, the superconducting undulator is used as a radiator in an optical klystron. The optical klystron is expected to produce coherent light in the 20 nm wavelength region... (More)
