Abstract
The free electron laser (FEL) amplification mechanism is discussed in this paper, including the influence of electron beam quality (energy spread, emittance, stability) on the FEL performance. Considerations regarding the choice of the electron accelerator are presented and some characteristic properties of laser radiation are discussed. An overview of FEL-facilities for the infrared spectral region, which are being designed and built worldwide, is given.
