Models of volume free electron lasers

Sytova Svetlana Nikolaevna, Research Institute for Nuclear Problems of Belarusian State University

Several mathematical models of volume free electron lasers are described with the aim of investigation of their nonlinear dynamics. This review includes models of beams of charged particles moving through spatially-periodic systems (photonic crystals). In simulation of volume free electron lasers on the base of photonic crystals made from metallic threads or foils working in the microwave range it was shown the necessity of taking into account dispersion of electromagnetic waves on resonator threads.
