Paper Abstract

The 10-pm Los Alamos free-electron laser (FEL) facility is being upgraded. The conventional electron gun and bunchers have been replaced with a much more compact 6-MeV photoinjector accelerator. By adding existing parts from previous experiments, the primary beam energy will be doubled to 40 MeV. With the existing 1-mS wiggler (Xv, 2.7 cm) and resonator, the facility can produce photons with wavelengths from 3 to 10 im when lasing on the fundamental mode and produce photons in the visible spectrum with short period wigglers or harmonic operation. After installation of a 150° bend, a second wiggler will be added as an amplifier. The installation of laser transport tubes between the accelerator vault and an upstairs laboratory will provide experimenters with a radiation free environment for experiments. At the time of writing (Jan. 1990), the injector plus one additional tank has been installed and tested with beam to an energy of 17 MeV.
