Paper Abstract

With the help of the unitary S matrix in the linear recoil approximation, the study of the spontaneous and the stimulated emission and absorption of higher harmonics in the uniform magnetic field free-electron laser is being pursued. The stimulated emission of single-mode photons, being due to just one harmonic, can be tuned to cover a rather limited frequency range, particularly the far-infrared/microwave spectral region. The spontaneous emission, because it is due to all the harmonics, covers a wide spectral region; consequently, at least in principle, it should be able to stimulate at least some higher harmonic radiation. Here, for theoretical and practical reasons, we limit our study largely to harmonics whose emission (absorption) occurs at angles that are "slightly" different from zero with respect to the uniform magnetic field.
