Paper Abstract

The stability of sidebands in a free electron laser is determined in the regime in which the three-dimensional structure of the modes is important. It is found that the growth rate of the sidebands in the presence of a fundamental mode which is weakly guided by the beam is reduced. The indications are that for some parameters the spatial growth rate of the sidebands can be made less than that of the fundamental.
