Image Charge Undulator - Proof-of-Principle

Jim Boyce
CASA, Jlab

Generating and using radiated energy from oscillating charges has been a staple in the toolbox of physicists and engineers for more than a century. And yet new ideas for generating and using such radiation continue to emerge. For example, two workshops at Jefferson Lab have explored the use of such a photon beam in the exploration of parity violation in nuclear physics. In this seminar we will discuss generating radiated energy by a relativistic moving charge bunch near a conductor with a periodic surface. We will discuss two types of surfaces, the resulting photon beams, and polarizations. Finally, a simple one-day experiment in the present FEL beam line, as a "proof-of-principle," will be presented.
