Strathclyde Open Access research that creates ripples...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of research papers by University of Strathclyde researchers, including by Strathclyde physicists involved in observing gravitational waves and black hole mergers as part of the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) - but also other internationally significant research from the Department of Physics.

Abstract

Theoretical and experimental studies of novel free-electron laser (FEL) schemes with 2-D Bragg resonators of planar and coaxial geometry are discussed. The highly selective properties of 2-D Bragg resonators are described including comparison with results of "cold" microwave measurements. First results of experimental studies of a planar W-band FEL based on the accelerator ELMI (INP RAS) are presented. Progress in a coaxial Ka-band FEL experiment under construction at the University of Strathclyde is described. A new project at the Budker Institute investigating a multibeam FEL where 2-D distributed feedback is used to synchronise several FEL units of planar geometry is also discussed.
