The waveguide is designed to operate near its cutoff frequency where the wavelength and phase velocity vary significantly to enable tuning of the equivalent undulator wavelength. The operating frequency would range from 18 - 24 GHz. It would be possible to generate coherent, high-energy 45 - 65 KeV x-rays from the fundamental mode which are tunable over a 20% energy range by changing the source frequency while maintaining constant field strengths. The x-ray brilliance of the microwave undulator would be 3 times higher at 56-KeV and 7 times higher at 66 KeV than what is available with the APS 1.8 cm period Superconducting Wire Undulator. Since the loss factor of sapphire is very low at cryogenic temperatures, it is possible to consider a superconducting microwave undulator, although resistive losses of ~200 to 700 W/m may be a bit too high for CW operation.
