Abstract
Aiming for the future upgrade of a hard x-ray beamline at the Pohang accelerator laboratory x-ray free-electron laser (PAL-XFEL), we first analyze the scheme recently proposed for the attosecond-terawatt (TW) x-ray pulse [Phys. Rev. Lett. 110, 084801 (2013) [CrossRef] ]. An x-ray pulse with 32 attosecond full-width half maximum (FWHM) pulse duration and ∼4  TW in power is shown in simulations using the PAL-XFEL parameters. Furthermore, to remove neighboring radiation pulses and to generate an isolated attosecond-TW x-ray pulse, the role of optical laser frequency chirp is examined on the electron beam current modulation as well as on the x-ray pulse generation in the undulator. Our simulations show an isolated x-ray pulse with 42 attosecond FWHM pulse duration and ∼3.5  TW in power for the optimal frequency chirp of a 400 nm optical laser. Recently, in a simpler method [J. Synchrotron Radiat. 23, 1273 (2016) [CrossRef] ] and [Phys. Rev. ST Accel. Beams 8, 040701 (2005) [CrossRef] ], using a frequency-chirped optical laser and the electron beam delays in between undulator sections, it has been reported that an isolated attosecond-TW x-ray pulse can be obtained at the undulator end. For optimal chirp in this simple setup, we show 50 attosecond FWHM pulse duration and ∼3  TW in power with ∼7.5×1010 photons per pulse at 0.1 nm radiation wavelength. Generation of such inherently synchronized, powerful single attosecond x-ray pulses at PAL-XFEL will be advantageous to the pump-probe experiments in the study of ultrafast dynamics.
