Abstract

The cavity dumping technique, applied to free electron lasers (FEL), is described. Taking advantage of both numerical simulations and experimental results on the Mark III FEL, a fairly exhaustive analysis is reported. In particular, we show that the output peak power can be increased by a factor even higher than one hundred. The cavity dumping experiment, under way on the Mark III FEL, is discussed in some detail.
