Abstract

A SELF-REGENERATIVE FEEDBACK TECHNIQUE IS BEING INVESTIGATEDTO SUPPRESS THE FORMATION OF SIDEBANDS THAT LIMIT THE SPECTRAL BRIGHTNESS AND GENERAL PERFORMANCE OF PRESENT HIGH-POWER FREE ELECTRON LASERS (FELS). THIS TECHNIQUE DOES NOT INVOLVE INTRA-CAVITY COMPONENTS THAT SUFFER LOSS DAMAGE DUE TO HIGH POWER OPERATION. A POTENTIAL BREAKTHROUGH IN FEL TECHNOLOGY, ANALYSIS AND SIMULATION ARE BEING PERFORMED TO OPTIMIZE THE OPTICAL DESIGN OF THE SELF-REGENERATIVE SYSTEM. POTENTIAL COMMERCIAL APPLICATIONSEXIST IN INDUSTRIAL MATERIALS PROCESSING AND POSSIBLE SURGICAL AND REMOTE SENSING USES.
