Figure 8
Inset: schematic of spatial filtering of radiation emitted by non-sliced electrons at the radiator image plane. The 3σx beam size of the non-sliced electron beam is approximately 200 µm at the source point (see electron distribution in Fig. 7[link]). Tail radiation from particles at large betatron amplitudes extends up to ∼500 µm from the beam central axis (x = −480 µm in the inset). A slit absorbs the radiation up to 300 µm (x = −180 µm) from the undulator axis. In the main plot: spectral flux density from sliced (red curve) and non-sliced electrons (blue curve), after removal of tail background radiation by the slit. The blue curve is multiplied by a factor 100 for better visibility. Around x = 0, where the short photon pulse radiation is centred, the short pulse intensity is at least 103 larger than the residual background radiation.
