Abstract

A stable pseudo-confocal geometry for recirculation injection by nonlinear gating (RING) of high-energy ultrashort pulses is demonstrated. Implementation of RING in this robust geometry will benefit the development of ultrabright light sources based on inverse Compton scattering by increasing their efficiency. A detailed cavity analysis is presented, and a cavity enhancement factor of 17 has been experimentally observed.

RING resonator in pseudo-confocal geometry. An injected 1064 nm laser beam generates a second harmonic, which is trapped inside the cavity. The cavity consists of a NC, nonlinear crystal; SM, two spherical mirrors; M1–M4, four flat mirrors. Mirrors M1 and M2 are dichroic. To adjust a cavity length, a pair of mirrors is put on a translation stage (either M2–M3 or M3–M4). Electron and laser beams meet at the IP.

Conversion efficiency in KD*P for changes from 0 to 80% as the crystal length increases; type II process is slightly more efficient than type I (upper and lower curves respectively). RING enhancement factor in the presence of linear absorption changes from 20 to 12 as the crystal length increases.
