This item was taken from the IEEE Periodical ' Initial operation of the Vanderbilt free electron laser ' The spectral data, power measurements and operational stability of the free-electron laser (FEL) facility at Vanderbilt University are discussed. This facility will be available to Vanderbilt and other institutions to conduct research in biomedicine and materials science. This FEL incorporates a 45-MeV traveling-wave linear accelerator (linac) with a 2.3-cm-period, Halbach-type, permanent magnet wiggler. In the initial configuration this system will selectively lase within the range of 2-8 mu m. It will operate with a 0.05% duty factor and with an average power approximately 6 W. The FEL assembly was completed during the winter of 1990-1. Testing and operation of the FEL were subsequently initiated.<>
