Paper Abstract

The free-electron laser has proven to be an invaluable source of radiation in the infrared spectral range. Its main qualities are the spectral range (from near-IR to mm waves), the tuning range (at least a decade for a given FEL) and tuning speeds (minutes), the high peak power (hundreds of MW) and the short pulse lengths (down to 100 fs RMS). In the last decade, several FELs have been designed and built as user dedicated facilities. Presently, seven infrared FELs are running more than 1000 hours/year for users performing experiments in various scientific fields.
