Paper Abstract

The Center for Free-Electron Laser Studies (CFELS) at UCSB has been established to pursue applications and development of far infrared free electron lasers. The FELs are driven by an electrostatic 6 MV Van De Graaf recirculating accelerator. Independent electron beam optics steer the electron beam through two static hybrid-type undulators. Tuneable radiation is provided from 2.5 mm to 63 micrometers wavelength. Under development is a third FEL, capable of lasing on the third harmonic and producing radiation from 60 micrometers to 30 micrometers . FIR experiments are carried out at the CFELS user facility where an evacuated transport system switches the FIR beam into one of seven ports. In addition, various ancillary equipment is available to facilitate research with the FELs.
