Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


In this paper, we show that the pulse propagation effects in high gain single pass free electron laser dynamics, from small signal to saturation, can be accurately modelled by using semi-analytical formulae. The method, which extends previous results, allows a fast and reliable tool of analysis of these devices along with a deeper understanding of the underlying physics. © 2005 Elsevier B.V.
