Leading national thinking on politics, government & public policy through Open Access research

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the School of Government & Public Policy, based within the Faculty of Humanities & Social Sciences.

Research here is 1st in Scotland for research intensity and spans a wide range of domains. The Department of Politics demonstrates expertise in understanding parties, elections and public opinion, with additional emphases on political economy, institutions and international relations. This international angle is reflected in the European Policies Research Centre (EPRC) which conducts comparative research on public policy. Meanwhile, the Centre for Energy Policy provides independent expertise on energy, working across multidisciplinary groups to shape policy for a low carbon economy.

Abstract

Electro-optic (EO) detection of relativistic Coulomb fields offers a method for non-destructive longitudinal profile measurements of ultrashort bunches. Techniques for single-shot EO characterisation of Coulomb fields which have been developed or demonstrated at the FELIX free electron laser (FEL) facility are discussed. In addition, recent FELIX experiments have used single-shot electro-optic detection to measure the temporal profile of the far-infrared electric field pulse of coherent synchrotron radiation (CSR), initial results of which are reported here. Such time-resolved CSR measurements have the potential for a completely non-invasive bunch longitudinal profile determination, without the ambiguity in profile that is present in CSR spectral measurements.
