Free-Electron Lasers in the Ultraviolet and X-Ray Regime : Physical Principles, Experimental Results, Technical Realization

The main goal of the book is to provide a systematic and didactic approach to the physics and technology of free-electron lasers. Numerous figures are used for illustrating the underlying ideas and concepts, and links to other fields of physics are provided. After an introduction to undulator radiat...
