Paper Abstract

Radio-frequency linear accelerators have been, and will continue to be, the most important source of electrons for free-electron lasers. This article describes the principles of operation of these devices along with some of their technological problems and expectations for the future. Some results of rf-linac free-electron laser experiments are discussed, with emphasis on those features of free-electron laser operation which are peculiar to devices powered by rf linacs.
