Status report on Jefferson Lab`s high-power infrared free-electron laser

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

Jefferson Lab is building a free-electron laser to produce tunable, continuous-wave (cw), kW-level light at 3-6 {mu}m wavelength. A superconducting accelerator will drive the laser, and a transport lattice will recirculate the beam back through the accelerator for energy recovery. Space charge in the injector and coherent synchrotron radiation in magnetic bends will be present, and the machine is instrumented to study these phenomena during commissioning. The wiggler and optical cavity are conventional; however, significant analysis and testing was needed to ensure mirror heating at 1 kW of outcoupled power would not impede performance. The FEL is being installed in ... continued below

Description

Jefferson Lab is building a free-electron laser to produce tunable, continuous-wave (cw), kW-level light at 3-6 {mu}m wavelength. A superconducting accelerator will drive the laser, and a transport lattice will recirculate the beam back through the accelerator for energy recovery. Space charge in the injector and coherent synchrotron radiation in magnetic bends will be present, and the machine is instrumented to study these phenomena during commissioning. The wiggler and optical cavity are conventional; however, significant analysis and testing was needed to ensure mirror heating at 1 kW of outcoupled power would not impede performance. The FEL is being installed in its own facility, and installation will be finished in Fall 1997. This paper surveys the machine, the status of its construction, and plans for its commissioning.
