Abstract:

There is presently in existence a large number of high energy electron accelerator machines that can be readily used as sources of electron beams suitable to demonstrate the basic operation of free electron lasers. Electrostatic accelerators appear to offer great promise for generating the electron beams needed by free electron lasers. Their conventional technology is well understood and there are good reasons to believe that this technology can be used with free electron lasers. The major components of the system are Accelerator high pressure tank HV generator Electron gun Electron accelerator column FEL periodic magnet and optical resonator Electron decelerator column Electron collector, and Ancillary electron beam optics and control system.
