Paper Abstract

A new free electron laser concept has been developed which is capable of providing high power optical beams with novel polarization states. It is possible to generate azimuthally polarized radiation with properly chosen electron beam and wiggler field parameters in a free electron laser. The radiation can be easily converted into a radially polarized beam which is suitable for providing a high longitudinal electric field for next-generation particle accelerators.
