Paper Abstract

Different stable-unstable resonator designs with one-side coupling for tunable free electron lasers have been analyzed. The eigenmode analysis of bare cavities shows that using a self-imaging resonator configuration enhances the mode discrimination against higher-order modes and results in better output intensity and phase profiles. It is also suggested to improve the near-field and far-field beam quality by using a combining and relayed optics for the output beam.
