Emerging technologies for crystal-based gamma-ray light sources

Project description

Intensive gamma-ray light sources based on bent crystal arrangements

The EU-funded TECHNO-CLS project plans to produce innovative gamma-ray light sources operating at photon energies from 100 keV up to the GeV range. The breakthrough research will investigate the processes underpinning the exposure of oriented crystals to high-energy electron and positron beams at the atomic scale. TECHNO-CLS will build on the success of previous testing of the idea of the crystalline undulator, namely a periodically bent crystal in which channelled electrons or positrons follow the bending of the crystalline plane. Light sources based on oriented crystals of different geometries could generate intensive radiation with wavelength orders of magnitudes less than 1 angstrom. Intensive radiation at wavelengths below this threshold cannot be achieved with technologies based on magnetic fields.
