Black gold: enabling bright, high rep-rate electron beams

Free electron lasers (FELs) have proven their worth, but next-generation light sources will have to do better than produce ultrabright x-ray pulses 100 or so times a second. What's needed is megahertz rep rate, a million times a second. Since it's electrons that make the x-rays, the only way to achieve that kind of performance is with an electron gun that can deliver tight electron bunches with high charge, high energy, and a very high repetition rate.
