Paper Abstract

Free-electron lasers (FELs) are being developed for all infrared wavelengths and into the short millimeter wave region. The pulse structure and very large variation in output powers means that many different detectors are required. This paper summarizes the presently available detectors and discusses the use of less conventional devices such as submicrometer diameter Schottky barrier diodes and photon drag detectors.
