Examples

  • These electron bunches then leave the linac and enter a series of undulator magnets.

    Molecular Photography

  • Particles 'wiggled' at undulator magnets emit stronger X-rays.

    BBC News - Home

  • If the bunches are sent through a second undulator, the emission can come from a "harmonic," its frequency now two or three or more integer times the original seed laser frequency.

  • Beams of ultraviolet and x-ray light are extracted from this electron beam through the use of either bending, wiggler or undulator magnetic devices.

    Health News from Medical News Today

  • Thirty-three LCLS undulator magnets create intense X-ray laser light from a pulse of electrons traveling 99.9999999 percent the speed of light.

  • The prime objective of Prof. Florian Grüner's group is to realise a laser-driven free-electron laser whose light is about a million times more brilliant than the undulator radiation now measured.

  • But the potential of undulator technology is much greater.

    innovations-report

  • Only 12 out of a total 33 LCLS undulator magnets were needed to create the first pulses of laser light.

  • These are then focused into a short undulator with alternating magnetic fields inside it, which forces the electrons to oscillate and thus causes them to emit X-ray radiation.
