OK-4/Duke storage ring FEL lasing in the deep-UV
In this paper we present the result of the deep-UV lasing with the OK-4/Duke storage ring FEL. The OK-4 FEL was initially commissioned at Duke Free Electron Laboratory in November 1996 followed by a yearlong shutdown. After re-establishing the storage ring operation in early 1998, the OK-4 FEL lasing was demonstrated in the wavelength range of 226-256 nm in April 1998. The OK-4 FEL successfully lased from 217 nm to 235 nm in August 1998. A number of lasing modes with electron energies ranging from 300 to 750 MeV have been established to accommodate application researches. Starting September 1998, the coherent deep-UV radiation is used for applications in surgery, cell biology, surface physics, and nuclear physics.
