Performance of the OK-4/Duke storage ring FEL


Journal Article

In this paper, we report measured parameters of the OK-4 FEL driven by the Duke storage ring. The OK-4 FEL was being operated continuously for 2 yr in the broad wavelength range for user applications utilising spontaneous and coherent XUV and UV radiation as well as Compton back-scattered γ-rays in the range of 2-58 MeV. During this time, the OK-4 FEL lased in the range from 193.7 to about 730 nm using five sets of mirrors and electron beam energies from 240 to 800 MeV. Our predictions for the OK-4 FEL are compared with measured performance, both in the CW and in the giant pulse mode. We discuss our future plans for the OK-4 FEL operation as well as the construction and commissioning of the OK-5 FEL with helical wigglers. © 2001 Elsevier Science B.V.
