Paper Abstract

IR FEL Research Center was newly established in April 1999 in the Noda Campus of the Science University of Tokyo (SUT). A mid-infrared free electron laser (MIR FEL) machine is now at the final stage of its construction and is expected to start its commissioning from the fall of 1999. In the second stage, the construction of a far-infrared free electron laser (FIR FEL) will begin from the fall of 2000. A project of constructing of an IR FEL facility is under the collaboration between the Science University of Tokyo and the Kawasaki Heavy Industries Ltd. The installed MIR FEL is based on the electron LINAC having maximum energy of 40 MeV as the injector of electron beam, tunable over the wavelength range from 5 to 16 micrometer, and the overall average power being 1 W at the repetition rate of 10 Hz. The above collaboration program, called 'FEL-SUT Project,' is of two folds; the one is the development of the technologies concerned with strong pico- second pulses IR FEL suitable for a wide application of IR FEL and the other is the exploration of new applications of IR FEL. It is also aimed to look for the possibility of industrial and medical use of IR FEL.
