Abstract
Advances made recently in the development of electron beam sources to drive free-electron lasers (FELs), have opened the door to novel generators of radiation for the far infrared. The quality of all such electron beam-based sources ultimately depends upon the characteristics of the electron beam. A key element of this project is the RF electron gun, originally designed to serve as the injector on the highly successful Mark III FEL. This electron gun (See Figure 1) has properties well suited to the development of a variety of unique short pulse, mode-locked devices which can operate from the microwave to the far-infrared. The gun produces macropulses of 1 MeV electrons, which is an ideal energy for the spectral region of interest to us. These macropulses have a duration of five microseconds and are further subdivided into a train of micropulses 1-2 picoseconds in length.
