FEL Activity in Frascati INFN National Laboratories

Part of the Ettore Majorana International Science Series book series (SLAP, volume 49)


The Frascati National Laboratory (LNF) is operating a 1.5 GeV electron storage ring, Adone. The ring, designed and operated until 1978 mainly for high energy physics colliding beam experiments, is now dedicated to nuclear physics1 and synchrotron radiation2 research. A wiggler, designed to provide a hard X-ray beam,3 is installed and operational. Although it has only three full periods, it can be operated in the undulator mode, to provide spontaneous radiation at visible wavelengths.
