Pagination or Media Count:
An overview of Free Electron Laser FEL research is presented, and a high-current, long pulse FEL experiment is described. The overview consists of a description of the FEL mechanism and operating regimes and a historical survey of experimental research. Preliminary results are presented from an FEL experiment using both linear and diffusive magnetic wigglers with a long pulse induction linac less than or approx. 800 kV, less than or approx. 800 A, 2 microsec. Mode identification of the approx. 100 kW output radiation pulse indicates that both FEL and cyclotron emission is present. Author
