Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

In this paper, we discuss a method to design a single-stage high Gain Harmonic Generation (HGHG) scheme with the aid of GENESIS 1.3 numerical code. To properly design an HGHG scheme, shot-noise effects in both undulators as well as the effect of the energy spread induced by the FEL process in the modulator have to be taken into account. We design the device evaluating these undesired effects separately in each stage and simulating the joint effects on the final configuration. The method will be illustrated following the example of an HGHG scheme for the SPARX project.
