Paper Abstract

Using Lienard-Wiechert fields and the Lorentz Force relation we present self consistent 3D radiation studies of electron beams moving through periodic electromagnetic structures such as those present in synchrotrons and free-electron laser undulators. Besides providing an economical means of calculating 3D vector radiation fields, our approach yields new insights into individual electron motion as it is driven by both, the velocity fields (Coulomb Fields) and the radiation fields generated by other electrons. We present results of electron beam compression resulting from longitudinal radiation forces competing in opposition with repulsive velocity field forces. We discuss results of noiseless 3D Self Amplified Spontaneous Emission in the X-Ray region resulting from the interaction of a filamentary electron beam with a circularly polarized magnetic undulator.
