Paper Abstract

The OK-4/Duke storage ring free electron laser (FEL) was commissioned in November, 1996 and demonstrated lasing in the near UV and visible ranges. During one month of operation we performed preliminary measurements of the main parameters of the OK-4 FEL: its gain, lasing power and temporal structure. In addition to lasing, the OK-4/Duke FEL generated a nearly monochromatic 12.2 MeV (gamma) -ray beam. In this paper we describe the status of the main subsystems including the injector system and the ring itself, and discus future and in-progress upgrades to these systems. We also describe the parameters measured to date of the injector, the storage ring, the generated optical laser beams, and the backscattered (gamma) -ray beam.
