Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


Designs are presented for infrared free electron lasers (FEL's) with rf wigglers and relatively low voltage electron beams. One design is presented for a 10pm laser driven by the 6 MeV linac at Santa Barbara. The ultimate portable system would be powered by a 3 MeV beam and it radiates in the 3-5μm atmospheric propagation window.
