Paper Abstract

Two concepts have been proposed for using transmissive diamond optics in the laser cavity of an FEL in order to reduce the cavity length: (1) a resonant reflector stack and (2) an intracavity divergent lens. The limitations of both designs will be discussed. Diamond was selected as the optical material for its low coefficient of thermal expansion, low thermal optic coefficient, low optical absorption coefficient, and high thermal conductivity at liquid nitrogen temperatures.
