  We present experimental results showing a greater than 50% increase in post-saturation radiation power extraction from a Free Electron Laser oscillator based on an electrostatic accelerator. Electrostatic accelerator free electron laser oscillators have the potential for CW operation. Present day operating oscillators rely on long pulses of electrons, tens of microseconds in duration; they generate correspondingly long radiation pulses, at a single longitudinal mode after a mode competition process. The presented post-saturation power extraction enhancement process is based on temporal tapering (up-ramping) of the beam energy, enabling a large synchrotron oscillation swing of the trapped electron bunches in passage along the interaction length. We further discuss the theoretical limits of the temporal tapering efficiency enhancement process.

  Coherent electron Cooling (CeC) is a proposed advanced beam cooling method that has the potential of reducing the ion beam emittance in significantly shorter amount of time compared to existing cooling methods. A high-gain FEL, composed of three permanent magnet helical wigglers, is acting as an amplifier of the ion's signals picked up by electron beam in CeC. A self-consistent simulation which takes the space and possible phase shifts between wigglers into account is crucial in determining the performance of the FEL. The authors developed an algorithm based on the well-used GENESIS code to properly treat the propagation of particles and radiations in between wigglers and predicted the FEL performance with different beamline layouts. The authors will present their simulation setup and results and provide hardware requirements for future operations and research at CeC.

WEP078 Period-Averaged Symplectic Maps for the FEL Hamiltonian ion, FEL, radiation, electron 563

Conventional treatments of synchrotron radiation in electron beams treat the radiation as a non-Hamiltonian aspect to the beam dynamics. However, the radiation can be modeled with an electromagnetic Hamiltonian. We present a period-averaged treatment of the FEL problem which includes the Hamiltonian aspects of the coupled electron-radiation dynamics. This approach is then applied to two problems: a 3D split-operator symplectic integrator, and a 1D single-mode FEL treated using Hamiltonian perturbation theory.

In the context of radiation emission from an electron beam, Dicke's superradiance (SR) is the enhanced coherent spontaneous radiation emission from a prebunched beam, and Stimulated-Superradiance (ST-SR) is the further enhanced emission of the bunched beam in the presence of a phase-matched radiation wave.* These processes are analyzed for undulator radiation in the framework of radiation field mode-excitation theory. In the nonlinear saturation regime the synchronicity of the bunched beam and an injected radiation wave may be sustained by wiggler tapering: Tapering-Enhanced Superradiance (TES) and Tapering-Enhanced Stimulated Superradiance Amplification (TESSA).** Identifying these processes is useful for understanding the enhancement of radiative emission in the tapered wiggler section of seeded FELs.***,**** The nonlinear formulation of the energy transfer dynamics between the radiation wave and the bunched beam fully conserves energy. This includes conservation of energy without radiation reaction terms in the interesting case of spontaneous self-interaction (no input radiation).
