Stabilized Hollow Ions Extracted in Vacuum


Journal Article

A nearly monochromatic beam of 100% linearly polarized γ rays has been produced via Compton backscattering inside a free electron laser optical cavity. The beam of 12.2 MeV γ rays was obtained by backscattering 379.4 nm free-electron laser photons from 500 MeV electrons circulating in a storage ring. A detailed description of the γ-ray beam and the outlook for future improvements are presented. © 1997 The American Physical Society.
