Paper Abstract

Advanced concepts of electrostatic accelerator free-electron lasers (EA-FELs) are discussed. The capabilities of electrostatic accelerators to produce continuous high energy electron-beams enable construction of efficient FELs, for generation of high average power of radiation at a wide range of the electromagnetic spectrum. Employing RF linacs for charging electrostatic accelerators provides transport of larger e-beam currents, and correspondingly producing even higher power. The unique features of EA-FELs make them excellent sources for applications, which require high-power radiation.
