Duke FEL storage ring light sources and applications

Journal Article

In this paper we present the status of the Duke UV FEL (Free Electron Laser) storage ring, ring based light sources, and a related multi-disciplinary application program. Using the OK-4 optical klystron system, we have demonstrated tunable spontaneous radiation from the near Infrared (IR) to UV, coherent laser radiation from 345 to 413 nm, and Compton back-scattered linearly polarized γ-ray radiation from 3 to 16 MeV. We report the progress made in developing new light source capabilities. We also report user interface development for a pilot application program organized to utilize various ring driven sources. We discuss future upgrades and additions to the ring based sources. © 1998 Elsevier Science B.V. All rights reserved.
