Design of single-shot longitudinal bunch profile monitor based on analysis of coherent smith-purcell radiation
The spectral analysis of coherent Smith-Purcell radiation (cSPr) is a promising new longitudinal diagnostic technique. This thesis presents a conceptual design for a single-shot, non-destructive, coherent Smith-Purcell radiation monitor and investigates the challenges of realising this type of diagnostic.
It is proposed to use the polarization of coherent Smith Purcell radiation in order to distinguish it from background radiation. A series of experimental studies are carried out at...Expand abstract
