Paper Abstract

A diffraction grating rhomb is an excellent candidate for both suppressing sideband instabilities in a free electron laser (FEL) and outcoupling the optical beam. A rhomb incorporating sinusoidal profile gratings exhibits many of the required performance characteristics for such an application. We present in some detail a description of such a rhomb and include a rhomb alignment sensitivity analysis.
