The XFEL oscillator (XFELO) and Regenerative Amplifier Free-Electron Laser (RAFEL) schemes offer a pathway to fully coherent, high brightness X-ray radiation. The XFELO and RAFEL consist of a high repetition rate electron beam, an undulator and an X-ray crystal cavity to provide optical feedback. The X-ray cavity will be based on diamond crystals in order to manage a high thermal load. We are investigating a ’Q switching’ mechanism that involves the use of a ’Bragg switch’ to dump the X-ray pulse energy built-up inside an X-ray cavity. In particular, one can use an optical laser to manipulate the diamond crystal lattice constant to control the crystal reflectivity and transmission. It has been shown that a 9 MeV focused boron beam can create a buried layer, approximately 5 microns below surface, with a boron concentration up to 10²¹ atoms/cm³. Here, we present simulations showing that absorbing laser pulses by a buried layer under the crystal surface would allow creating a transient temperature profile which would be well suited for the ’Q switching’ scheme.
