    Abstract

    A method for generating a single broadband radiation pulse from a strongly chirped electron pulse is described. The evolution of the chirped electron pulse in an undulator may generate a pulse of coherent spontaneous radiation of shorter duration than the FEL cooperation length. An analytic expression for the emitted radiation pulse is derived and compared with numerical simulation.
