Paper Abstract

The far-infrared free-electron laser operating at the University of California at Santa Barbara is described The free-electron laser (FEL) at the University of California at Santa Barbara has been in operation since August 1984. It is a far-infrared laser driven by long pulses of electron beam originating in an electrostatic accelerator with a beam recovery system. The main thrust and funding for this project have been motivated, so far, by the need for a tunable, high-power, coherent source in this region in areas such as condensed-matter physics, biology, chemistry and medicine as well as the development of an electrostatic-accelerator driven FEL. It is now being used routinely for research in these fields.
