4th Microbunching Instability Workshop

April 11-13, 2012 at College Park, MD.
This meeting is intended to serve both as timely review and a forum for informal scientific exchanges on experimental observations, theoretical understanding, and numerical modeling of microbunching phenomena for present and future short wavelength FEL facilities.

4th Microbunching Instability Workshop 1st_Announcement
Concurrent with the growth of X-ray FELs over the past few years, the microbunching instability has been established as a relevant topic for the FEL performance. Clear evidence of longitudinal microbunching in high brightness electron beams to be used for FEL applications has been gathered at several laboratories. If left uncontrolled, the strong microbunching may degrade the beam quality and subsequent FEL output, and pose serious challenges to beam diagnostics. We hope this meeting will serve both as timely review and informal scientific exchanges on experimental observations, theoretical understanding, and numerical modeling of these phenomena for present and future short wavelength FEL facilities.
