Numerical analysis of shielded coherent radiation and noninertial spacecharge force with 3D particle tracking
Abstract
A 3D particle tracking code is developed to estimate emittance growth in bunchcompressors. The simulation code enables one to calculate the electron beam distribution in sixdimensional phase space along a given beam line and estimate emittance growth caused by shielded coherent radiation and noninertial spacecharge forces as well as the usual spacecharge force and higherorder aberrations. We present some examples of calculations for unshielded and shielded coherent synchrotron radiation, including a comparison with 1D theoretical prediction. The relation between emittance growth and the complex radiation resistance of conducting walls is also introduced.
