Abstract
Free-electron-laser electron beam requirements generated by the need for coherent, short pulse radiation at x-ray wavelengths and those generated by the need for high average power, good wavefront quality at infrared wavelengths are compared. Various approaches and the accelerator technologies employed to achieve the required electron beam current, quality and pulse format are discussed and compared for a range of proposed FEL applications. The commonality and synergism between the electron beam generation and measurement technologies required for the two different FEL operating regimes are described.
