Abstract
Mirror heating in a high power FEL can alter the optical mode and affect the gain of the laser. This can lead to a large reduction of the laser power from ideal values. Measurements of the power and mode size in the Jefferson Lab IR Demo laser have shown clear evidence of mirror distortion at high average power loading. The measurements and comparisons with modeling will be presented. Both steady state and transient analyses and measurements are considered.
