Abstract

A research program towards a future ERL light source based on an energy-recovery linac (ERL) has been launched in Japan. Possible FEL options in the future ERLs are also under discussion. We investigate an X-ray FEL oscillator, one of the attractive options in a multi-GeV ERL light source, by 1-D time-dependent simulations. The simulation shows that narrow-band FEL lasing in hard X-ray wavelength region is established by Bragg reflectors, and even a single supermode operation is possible by choosing appropriate cavity-length detuning.
