Abstract

The development of future free electron lasers (FELs) requires reliable time-resolved measurements of ultrashort (less than ps) electron-bunches, especially their temporal distribution. A possible technique is to streak the bunch in the transverse direction by means of time-dependent external electromagnetic fields. A passive deflector, consisting of a dielectriclined waveguide, is used to produce electromagnetic wakefield that impart a time-dependent transverse kick to a relativistic electron bunch that propagates off-axis. The present work explores the possible use of the self-generated electromagnetic fields.
