Abstract:

Experiments on a Raman FEL with a tapered field have been done. A maximum radiation output of 31MW at 8 to 10.4mm has been obtained with an energy efficiency of 9.68. The tapering technique is effective in increasing the efficiency in the Raman FEL for large current and low energy electron beam.
