Insertion Devices - VISA Undulator

  • Demonstrate SASE gain to saturation at 600-800 nm
  • Operate with ATF linac beam (72-85 MeV)
  • Fit in available space in ATF -- 4 m long
  • Must achieve gain length of <0.4 m
  • Must control e-beam walk-off to < 50 mm
  • Need strong focusing
  • Need ultra-precise alignment techniques
