Modeling of Coherent Synchrotron Radiation using a Direct Numerical Solution of Maxwells Equations
Novokhatski, Alexander.
We present and discuss the properties of coherent electromagnetic fields of a very short, ultra-relativistic bunch, which travels in a rectangular vacuum chamber under the influence of a bending force of a magnet. The analysis is based on the results of a direct numerical solution of Maxwells equations together with Newton's equations. We use a new dispersion-free time-domain algorithm which employs a more efficient use of finite element mesh techniques and hence produces self-consistent and sta... Show Full Abstract
We present and discuss the properties of coherent electromagnetic fields of a very short, ultra-relativistic bunch, which travels in a rectangular vacuum chamber under the influence of a bending force of a magnet. The analysis is based on the results of a direct numerical solution of Maxwells equations together with Newton's equations. We use a new dispersion-free time-domain algorithm which employs a more efficient use of finite element mesh techniques and hence produces self-consistent and stable solutions for very short bunches. We investigate the fine structure of the CSR fields. We also discuss coherent edge radiation. We present a clear picture of the field using the electric field lines constructed from the numerical solutions. This approach should be useful in the study of existing and future concepts of particle accelerators and ultrafast coherent light sources, where high peak currents and very short bunches are envisioned.
