Measurements and Simulations of CSR Effects in the APS Bunch Compressor
In July 2000, a magnetic bunch compressor was installed in the APS
linac as part of the LEUTL FEL project. This compressor was intended
to test concepts for the bunch compressors that will be used in the
LCLS. Hence, we have been experimentally characterizing the effects
of coherent synchrotron radiation (CSR) as well as developing simulation
codes to predict these effects. We report here on recent measurements
and simulation results, which show good agreement. We also discuss
plans for future experiments.
