  We report on our investigations into density fluctuations in electron bunches. Noise and density fluctuations in relativistic electron bunches, accelerated in a linac, are of critical importance to various Coherent Electron Cooling (CEC) concepts as well as to free-electron lasers (FELs). For CEC, the beam noise results in additional diffusion that counteracts cooling. In SASE FELs, a microwave instability starts from the initial noise in the beam and eventually leads to the beam microbunching yielding coherent radiation, and the initial noise in the FEL bandwidth plays a useful role. In seeded FELs, in contrast, such noise interferes with the seed signal, so that reducing noise at the initial seed wavelength would lower the seed laser power requirement. Status of the project will be presented.

Microbunched electron cooling (MBEC) is a cooling scheme in which a beam of hadrons to be cooled induces energy perturbations in a beam of electrons. These electron energy perturbations are amplified and turned into density modulations, which in turn provide energy kicks to the hadrons, tending to cool them. For simplification, previous work has modelled the electron-hadron interactions using a disc-disc model, assuming that the inter-particle kicks depend only on the longitudinal distances between individual hadrons and electrons. In reality, these kicks will also have a transverse dependence, which will impact the cooling process. We incorporate this transverse kick dependence into our simulations of the cooling process, allowing us to better understand the physics and provide improved design goals for the MBEC cooler for the Electron-Ion Collider.
