Paper Abstract

A simple method of looking at sideband development in a free-electron laser has been developed. It reduces a two-dimensional (z,t) mathematical formulation to a one-dimensional (t) formulation. A graphical interpretation gives us the intensity increment on the leading edge of a square optical pulse in the two-dimensional problem in terms of the average energy loss curve for the electrons in a one-dimensional problem.
