Submission of FEL User Proposals


Working on/upgrading one of the dipole magnets that bend the electron beam 180 degrees for the IR Upgrade FEL

FEL experiments require safety & scientific approval before assignment of beam time. The process will be described in detail in the Jefferson Lab EH&S Manual Chapter 3130.

Scientific approval is by the FEL Program Advisory Committee.

Safety approval is by the FEL Technical Advisory Committee.

After these approvals you must submit a Laser Operation Plan to G. Williams (x7521)to tell the operator how you want the FEL run.

User proposals have a lifetime of 2 years. They can be submitted at any time. The Program Advisory Committee meets annually at the user meeting in the Spring. We are currently recommissioning the upgrade FEL and have run a few user experiments. If you have any questions please e-mail
