Paper Abstract

Free electron lasers (FELs) provide a unique physical system for analysis with computer simulations. The only physical constants needed are the electron charge and mass, and the speed of light, in order to accurately represent many complex physical effects. Large simulations requiring CRAY computers have successfully supported many large FEL experiments, but most often, the important physical processes can be simulated on small workstations.
