Abstract

The linear gain of a millimeter-wave free electron laser (FEL) amplifier employing an intense relativistic electron beam has been measured as a function of the strength of the applied axial magnetic field. The experimental results, showing high growth rates (up to 1.8 dB/cm) and suggesting broad instantaneous frequency bandwidth, are in good agreement with predictions of a three-dimensional theory for the FEL interaction.
