Abstract
The nonlinear simulation of x ray free-electron lasers is dealt with using the non-wiggler-averaged MEDUSA simulation code and realistic wiggler model built up from the contributions of permanent magnets in a Halbach configuration in conjunction with a model for a FODO lattice for enhanced focusing. The specific parameters of interest are relevant to the linac coherent light source design at SLAC and deals with a 15 GeV/5 kA electron beam, and a wiggler with a 3.0 cm period and an on-axis amplitude of approximately 12.7 kG which results in x ray emission at wavelengths in the vicinity of 1.3 angstrom.
