Beam manipulation is a process to rearrange beam's distribution in 6-D phase space. In many cases, a simple phase space manipulation may lead to significant enhancement in the performance of accelerator based facilities. In this paper, I will discuss various beam manipulation techniques for tailoring beam distribution in modern accelerators to meet the requirements of various applications. These techniques become a new focus of accelerator physics R&D and hold great promise in opening up new opportunities in accelerator based scientific facilities.

  We study the effect of longitudinal space charge on the correlated energy spread of a relativistic beam that has been microbunched for the emission of coherent, high harmonic radiation. We show that, in the case of microbunching induced by a laser modulator followed by a dispersive chicane, longitudinal space charge forces can act to significantly reduce the induced energy spread of the beam without a reduction in the harmonic bunching content. This effect may be optimized to significantly increase the harmonic number achievable in seeded HGHG free electrons lasers, which are otherwise limited by the induced energy spread from the laser.
