In science:

Fig.7 shows the calculated SR distribution from the SM of KEK ATF extraction line for different inflecting angles d .
Synchrotron radiation contributions to optical diffraction radiation measurements
Figure 7. Top view of experimental setup at BNL/ATF showing beam line, vacuum vessel, interferometer and optics.
Interference of diffraction and transition radiation and its application as a beam divergence diagnostic
The energy spread of the ATF beam was monitored during the experiment and is less than 0.5%.
Interference of diffraction and transition radiation and its application as a beam divergence diagnostic
Both variational analysis of the interference terms in Eq. 1. and our convolution codes show that this spread is too small to be responsible for the observed fringe blurring; i.e. the energy spread would have to be 16 times larger (8%) to show the effect observed at ATF.
Interference of diffraction and transition radiation and its application as a beam divergence diagnostic
The energy spread at NPS is higher than ATF, i.e. a few percent. However, the divergence of the NPS beam is also higher. Both variational analysis and computer convolution calculations show that the energy spread is not sufficient to significantly affect the observed visibility.
Interference of diffraction and transition radiation and its application as a beam divergence diagnostic
We analyzed the historical data acquired prior to the Feb 2008 ATF run as well as new data taken during the run.
