Paper Abstract

As an optical source, an undulator can be described by its distribution of brilliance in phase space (angle and position in the transverse plane). This is a convolution of single-particle diffraction pattern and electron beam distribution. Approximate peak brilliance and phase space widths are given. By analogy between brilliance and Wigner function, the depth-of-field and diffraction widths are shown to be essentially the same thing. The peak brilliance is shown to have a broad maximum as a function of the beam β function (β = L/2π but is practially independent of β at short wavelengths.
