Abstract:

A research program has been carried out to advance the science and technology of free-electron lasers and their applications. The overall objectives of the program were the following were 1 development of free-electron lasers in the millimeter and far-infrared region. 2 facilitate the application of far-infrared free-electron lasers to research in frontier science and technology and 3 training of researchers in the development, operation and application of free-electron lasers. A free electron laser-facility, unique in world, has been developed which is operational from 200 GHz, 6.6 cm 1, to 4.8 THz, 160 cm-1, tunable under computer control and able to deliver kilowatts of millimeter wave an far-infrared power. An important part of this facility is a well equipped user lab that has been used to perform ground breaking experiments in scientific areas as diverse as biophysics, bio-medicine, magnetism, semiconductors and laser physics. Nine graduate students and post doctoral researchers have been trained in the operation, use and application of these free-electron lasers.
