Electron trajectories through a linear wiggler calculated with a threedimensional orbit tracing program
Abstract
A method for calculating the trajectories of electrons through a finite length linear wiggler structure including fringing effects is presented. Calculations are carried out using an orbit tracing program written in BASIC and compiled to run on a IBM PC microcomputer equipped with the 8087 math processing chip. The program is a menudriven code allowing adjustable parameters for the electron beam and for the wiggler structure.
