Superconducting Micro-undulator FEL Experiment
The microundulator FEL experiment at the Accelerator test Facility is located on Beam Line number 3. This set-up is used by a number of experiments. The BNL FEL Oscillator experiment will use a dc superconducting electromagnet wiggler.
MIT has an experiment on the same line that will use a pulsed electromagnet. The period and length of the MIT microundulator have been chosen to be the same as the BNL superconducting device. This will lead to an interesting comparison of the two short period devices under otherwise identical conditions.
Finally, Columbia University will use the microundulator FEL to study spiking in short wavelength FELs.
