Paper Abstract

The Average Power Laser Experiment program has a goal of demonstrating a fully operational RF driven FEL by 1996. When commissioned, this laser will produce 10 micron radiation at power levels greater than 100 kW for at least three minutes. The device will operate in the single accelerator, master-oscillator, power amplifier mode, with the oscillator providing a seed laser of about 75 watts to drive the amplifier. A preliminary design of the APLE was reported elsewhere. In this paper we report further progress in the design definition.
