Paper Abstract

The Duke Free Electron Laser (FEL) Laboratory is housed in a 52,000 square foot adjacent to the Physics and Math Building at Duke University. There will be several EELs in the laboratory. The first is the linear accelerator-based Mark ifi FEL which has been operational since February 1992 (see Fig. 1). It is capable of providing electron beam energies of up to 44 MeV with an optical output tunable from 1.7-9.1 microns. The infrared beam consists of a train of micropulses 0.5-3 psec duration at the RF frequency of 3 GH (350 psec separation of the micropulse). The RF is delivered in 2-6 ji. secpulses at a nominal repetition rate of 10 Hz. The repetition rate of the macropulses can be varied from 1-20 Hz.
