  For future applications of high-brightness electron beams, including the design of next generation FEL's, correct correct simulation of Coherent Synchrotron Radiation (CSR) is essential as it potentially degrades beam quality to unacceptable levels. However, the long interaction lengths compared to the bunch length, numerical cancellation, and difficult 3D retardation conditions make accurate simulation of CSR effects notoriously difficult. To ease the computational burden, CSR codes often make severe simplifications such as an ultra relativistic bunch travelling on a prescribed reference trajectory. Here we report on a new CSR model, implemented in the General Particle Tracer (GPT) code, that avoids most of the usual assumptions: It directly evaluates the Lienard-Wiechert potentials based on the stored history of the beam, it makes no assumptions about reference trajectories, while also taking into account the transverse size of the beam. First results demonstrating microbunching gain in a chicane are presented.

  Many research and applications areas require photon sources capable of producing extreme ultra-violet (EUV) to gamma-ray beams with reasonably high fluxes and compact footprints. We explore the feasibility of a compact energy-recovery linac EUV free electron laser (FEL)*, and of a multi-MeV gamma-rays source based on inverse Compton scattering from a high intensity UV FEL emitted by the electron beam itself. In the latter scenario, the same electron beam is used to produce gamma-rays in the 10-20 MeV range and UV radiation in the 1015 eV range, in a ~4x22 m2 footprint system.**
