Abstract
A continuously tunable alexandrite laser source for injection into a high power visible FEL is designed to promote high efficiency performance without the need for complex wiggler design. The Kroll-Morton-Rosenbluth one-dimentional equations of motion are used to estimate the injection power requirements for both a RF LINAC FEL oscillator and an Induction LINAC FEL amplifier. Subject to this analysis, alexandrite laser performance characteristics are determined in order to deliver the peak powers required for immediate gain saturation of the FEL. Extension of the alexandrite tuning range via non-linear optics is proposed to permit eventual semi-continuous laser injected FEL operation from the UV to the near-IR.
