Simulation of Synchrotron Radiation in an Electron Storage Ring


We studied a method of using symplectic integrator to simulate incoherent synchrotron radiation in an electron storage ring. The simulation includes both classical radiation and its quantum fluctuations. We found that the emission process of photon using a compound Poisson process cannot be applied to the fourth-order integrator because it has negative path length which implies a negative number of emitted photons. The simulations are carried out using only the second-order integrator. The result of equilibrium beam size agrees with the analytical calculation well. The method can be applied for all types of magnets.

The PDF version of this document was distilled from a PostScript file most likely created from LaTeX source which used Type 3 fonts. The resultant PDF may be unreadable on the screen at the default viewing magnification (fonts will appear bitmapped, jagged), though the type will be legible at higher magnifications.

Despite the cosmetic problems resulting from the use Type 3 fonts in the original source file, such PDF files print without problems; likewise, the onscreen text is searchable and selectable.
