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

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.
