Generation of Ultrafast Mid-IR pulses using a 100 MeV ERL-FEL

(Drivers for tunable HHG based coherent X-Ray sources ?)


Phase matched HHG using mid-IR lasers (Experiments) ERL-FEL

T. Popmintchev, nature photonics| VOL 4 | DECEMBER 2010

Generation of coherent X-Ray pulses by HHG

  • Idea (A.Foehlisch): Can we drive HHG by a compact ERL(FEL)?

  • requirements imposed on drive lasers :

    - HHG (phase matched) needs preferably few cycle to ~10 cycle drive laser pulses in NIR/MIR and intensities in the range of 1-5x1014 W/cm2(noble gas filled hollow waveguide apertures: ~100mm-200mm )

  • OPCPA’s

  • NIR sub-10 fs with 70 mJ energy at 100kHz.

  • NIR sub-10 fs multi-kHz, multi-mJ

  • Mid-IR (~3mm) sub-100 fs with a few micro-Joule energy at 100kHz

  • 3.9 mm sub-100 fs with 6 mJ at 10-20Hz


  • Outline : ERL-FEL

  • short term: carrying out the HHG experiments on an existing FEL facility that meets the requirements set on the mid-IR drive laser, verifying the theory throughout the mid-IR (and beyond 10 mm if necessary) (JLab ???)

  • long term: mid-IR ERL-FELs should be able to perform better than atomic lasers in terms of :

  • tunability (throughout the nir/mid IR and beyond)

  • rep rate (MHz) in generating mJ(s) of ultrafast pulses with high average power (problems in CEP stabilization???)

  • simulation study has been and still is mainlyfocused on the latter and on the question:

  • What system requirements will be imposed on a compact ERL, (particularly concerning timing jitter budget)


Ultrashort Pulse Generation in (Mid IR) FELs ERL-FEL

  • Chirped pulse generation in a FEL oscillator using a chirped electron beam and pulse compression (JLab)

  • Mode-locking techniques in FELs

  • -Active mode-locking (multiple OK sections used in a

  • cavity)

  • - Passive mode-locking (JAERI, lasing at l~22 mm)

  • (single spike, high gain superradiant FEL osc.)

  • Generation of short electron pulses (JLab)

  • - Rep rate: 40 MHz

  • - Outcpl.Pls. Energy: 50-70mJ

  • -Cav. Enhancement: 80-100

  • Pulse width: ~100-200fs (fwhm)

  • IL~ 1x1014 – 3.5x1014W/cm2

Mode-locked

NIR Laser

  • high-Q enhancement cavity (EC) smoothes out power and timing jitter of the injected pulses inherent to FEL interaction.

  • allows fs (10 -100 ?) level synchronization of the cavity dumped mid-IR pulse with the mode-locked switch laser.

- Depending on the recombination time of the fast switch, sequence of micropulses with several ns separation can be ejected from the EC !

3D (semi-)frequency domain synchronization

1½D - SVEA time domain

Comparison between two FEL simulation methods

(superradiant) FEL Oscillator@ synchr.' case

‘FEL oscillator-cav. detuning' case

  • good agreement between the models in 'FEL oscillator with cavity detuning' case

  • (in terms of outcoupled pulse energy, temporal and spectral pulse profiles)

  • Disagreements in the 'superradiant operation at cavity synchronism' in obtaining self similar pulses following saturation, differences in temporal and spectral pulse profiles.


e- bunch synchronization

Dt/t = dL/L + df/f

FEL Osc. sensitivity to temporal jitter

  • Dt: timing jitter

  • L : cavity length

  • dL: cavity length detuning

  • f : bunch rep. frequency (perfectly synchronized to L)

  • : cavity roundtrip time ( 2L/c)

  • Bunch time arrival variation effectively has the same effect

  • as cavity length detuning.

  • effect of the timing jitter on the FEL performance

  • In slippage dominated short pulse FEL oscillators cavity detuning is necessary to optimize the temporal overlap between optical and e- pulses (Lethargy effect).Timing jitter induces fluctuations on the operational cavity detuning.
