High brightness electron sources, such as photo injectors, deliver electron beams with a few Ampere peak currents yet high energy X-ray free-electron lasers require electron beams with >3kA peak currents to operate. In order to bridge this gap, a 100x beam compression that does not reduce the brightness of an electron beam has to take place. We will present our study of an E-SASE based compression scheme aimed at satisfying the requirements of high energy X-ray free electron lasers regarding electron beam currents, energy spreads and emittances. The E-SASE compression is based on a laser modulation of an electron beam energy and subsequent compression in a small magnetic chicane, which results in a train of high current bunches that are synchronized to the external laser and could be used in pump-probe experiments. A unique time profile of an electron beam is expected to suppress the resistive-wall wake effects.

THB02 Understanding 1D to 3D Coherent Synchrotron Radiation Effects 578

  Collective effects such as coherent synchrotron radiation (CSR) can have a strong influence of the properties of an electron bunch with respect to the quality of the FEL light that it produces. In particular, CSR experienced by a bunch on a curved trajectory can increase the transverse emittance of a beam. In this contribution, we present an extension to the well-established 1D theory of CSR by accounting fully for the forces experienced in the entrance and exit transients of a bending magnet. A new module of the General Particle Tracer (GPT) tracking code was developed for this study, showing good agreement with theory. In addition to this analysis, we present experimental measurements of the emittance growth experienced in the FERMI bunch compressor chicane as a function of bunch length. When the bunch undergoes extreme compression, the 1D theory breaks down and is no longer valid. A comparison between the 1D theory, experimental measurements and a number of codes which simulate CSR differently are presented, showing better agreement when the transverse properties of the bunch are taken into account.

  The transverse emittance of the electron beam is a fundamental parameter that determines the performance of free-electron-lasers (FELs). In this contribution, we present emittance measurements carried out at SwissFEL, the X-ray FEL facility that recently started to operate at PSI in Switzerland, including a description of our measurement methods and optimization procedures. We obtained slice emittance values at the undulator entrance down to ~200 nm for an electron beam with a charge of 200 pC and an r.m.s. duration of ~30 fs. Furthermore, we achieved slice emittances as low as ~100 nm for 10 pC beams with few femtosecond duration.

THB04 Longitudinal Phase Space Study on Injector Beam of High Repetition Rate X-Ray FEL 584

  The longitudinal phase space of the high repetition rate injector beam usually twisted and deteriorated by the space charge force. It causes the correlated energy spread and the local chirp within the beam, which could not compensated by the harmonic correction. As a consequence of this problem, one could not get ideal beam with a peak current more than kiloamperes. In this paper several approaches have been studied to relieve this effect and get the well compressed beam for the lasing.
