Abstract

We describe a free-electron laser (FEL) in the Self-Amplified Spontaneous Emission (SASE) regime quantizing the electron motion and taking into account propagation effects. We demonstrate quantum purification of the SASE spectrum, i.e. in a properly defined quantum regime the spiking behavior disappears and the SASE power spectrum becomes very narrow.
