Free-Electron Laser Experiments

Using an electron beam in a magnetic field as the gain medium, free-electron lasers offer a powerful new source of tunable, coherent radiation. Results are just becoming available from several new experiments, but they are confirming the theoretical promise of these devices. Backed up by a strong base of accelerator technology, free-electron lasers are expected to become important in applications requiring wavelengths from the far infrared part of the spectrum to the vacuum ultraviolet.
