Abstract
This paper is dedicated to the discussion of some critical issues related to the choice of the appropriate driver for high power short wavelength CW FELs. The case for industrial need of high power short wavelength CW FELs is well established and will not be discussed here. This paper emphasizes issues related to power beaming requirements with an FEL wavelength of 0.85 micrometers and an average power level of 100 kW to 1 MW. Most of the conclusions are applicable for high power short wavelength ((lambda) < 1 micrometers ) CW FELs. Conclusions of this paper are not applicable to far infrared FELs where different technologies can be successfully used.
