Abstract

We report for the first time to our knowledge the experimental achievement of a storage ring free-electron laser (FEL) device dedicated to applications in the IR region. IR FELs were oscillated in the wavelength region of 1392 1502 nm , and the relative linewidth was 3 × 10 4 . The maximum power of the IR FEL transmitted through a vacuum window was approximately 0.3 mW , and the intracavity power was approximately 2 W . We have already observed an intensive quasi-monochromatic x ray by using FEL Compton backscattering. The results of our study are expected to lead to applications in which an IR FEL and a quasi-monochromatic x ray will be used simultaneously.
