INTRODUCTION

A Free Electron Laser generates tunable, coherent, high power radiation, currently spanning wavelengths from millimeter to x-ray. It can have the optical properties characteristic of conventional lasers such as high spatial coherence and a near diffraction limited radiation beam. It differs from conventional lasers in using a relativistic electron beam as its lasing medium, as opposed to bound atomic or molecular states, hence the term free-electron.
