A Test of Superradiance in an FEL Experiment

Abstract

We describe the design of an FEL Amplifier Test Experiment (FATE)$^1$ to demonstrate the superradiant short bunch regime of a Free Electron Laser in the 1 - 3 $\mu$m wavelength range starting from noise. The relevance to the LCLS X-ray FEL [1] proposal is discussed and numerical simulations are shown. It is numerically demonstrated for the first time with the 2-D code GINGER, that clean-up of noise in the superradiant regime occurs even at low power levels.
