Paper Abstract

In this paper, the possibility of amplifying two frequencies simultaneously in a free electron laser is discussed. Stability conditions for electron motion are derived, and numerical calculations reported. The advantages offered by using a D.C. Pelletron beam to power such a device, with application to the plasma beatwave accelerator - high efficiency, high average power, radiation wavelength tunability, and the possibility of phase locking several independent optical cavities - are evaluated. Related research efforts, and their impact on the design of this device are discussed.
