Abstract:

This research sponsored by the SDIO Biomedical and Materials Sciences FEL Program held the following objectives. Provide a facility in which in-house and outside user research in the materials and biological sciences can be carried out in the Far Infrared using-the unique properties of the UCSB electrostatic accelerator-driven FEL. Develop and implement new FEL concepts and FIR technology and encourage the transfer and application of this research. Train graduate students, post doctoral researchers and technical personnel in varied aspects of scientific user disciplines, FEL science and FIR technology in a cooperative, interdisciplinary environment. In summary, a free electron laser facility 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 and far-infrared power. This facility has a well equipped user lab that has been used to perform ground breaking experiments in scientific areas as diverse as bio-physics. Nine graduate students and post doctoral researchers have been trained in the operation, use and application of these free-electron lasers.
