Experimental study of a two-color storage ring FEL ?
Copyright © 2015 CC-BY-3.0 and by the respective authors. Multi-color Free-electron Lasers (FELs) have been developed on linac based FELs over the past two decades. On the storage ring, the optical klystron (OK) FEL in its early days was demonstrated to produce lasing at two adjacent wavelengths with their spectral separation limited by the bandwidth of single wiggler radiation. Here, we report a systematic experimental study on the two-color operation at the Duke FEL facility, the first experimental demonstration of a tunable two-color harmonic FEL operation of a storage ring based FEL. We demonstrate a simultaneous generation of two FEL wavelengths, one in infrared (IR) and the other in ultraviolet (UV) with a harmonic relationship. The experimental results show a good performance of the two-color FEL operation in terms of two-color wavelength tunability, power tunability and power stability.
