Paper Abstract

The essential features of generalized numerical models developed at Rocketdyne to compute rigorously the 3 D transverse mode structure of free-electron laser oscillators are presented. The oscillator may consist of a conventional standing or a traveling wave cavity, or may be more complex, and contain intracavity grazing optical elements. Numerical resolution needed to (1) compute the gain due to a spatially distributed electron beam and (2) propagate the electromagnetic field when coupled to this gain are discussed with illustrative examples.
