Examples

  • The brightness is usually boosted by "insertion devices," however - trains of dipole magnets called undulators or wigglers, whose poles alternate north and south to make the electrons slalom back and forth.

  • The electrons will then be sent to a 791 m circumference storage ring that contains magnetic devices called "undulators", which forces the electrons to follow a sinusoidal path and emit X-rays.

  • To my understanding, the undulators make the electrons wiggle and thus change course, during which they give off X-rays via synchrotron radiation.

  • And the undulators are built in such a way as to make the X-rays coherent, with a wavelength of 1.5 Angstroms (0.15 nanometer).

  • The revamped Mickey Mouse club of 1989 showcased a rookie division of heartthrobs and undulators who would tramp all over the record charts in the following decade.

  • And the wavelength of the light emitted can be readily tuned by adjusting the energy of the electron beam or the magnetic field strength of the undulators.

  • The new technology will benefit many other fields as well, from undulators for next-generation light sources to more compact medical devices.

  • Synchrotrons, being roughly circular, can accommodate a great many beamlines, but a linac's one-way electron beam can be switched between several undulators, each a FEL tailored for different experimental needs.
