Paper Abstract

The far-infrared portion of the electromagnetic spectrum has remained largely unexplored, partially as a consequence of a lack of suitable sources. The Stanford Far-Infrared Free- Electron Laser has recently demonstrated lasing at 86 micrometers . With component costs, space, shielding requirements, and complexity reduced by up to an order of magnitude from conventional designs, this places the far-infrared free-electron laser within the reach of an individual researcher or a research department. Results from the most recent experimental run are presented. The accelerator section is currently undergoing redesign to make it more suitable for free-electron laser use.
