Abstract:

A historical survey of scientific developments predating the free electron laser FEL concept is presented. A general theory of operation of the FEL is discussed. The use of electromagnets to generate a static periodic magnetic field of alternating polarity as a pump wave source is proposed. Preliminary measurements with respect to the proposed electromagnet design are analyzed. Author
