    A density prebunched electron beam on a Cerenkov free electron laser (CFEL) offers considerable enhancement in gain and efficiency in a dielectric loaded waveguide. The growth rate, efficiency, and gain were evaluated based on experimentally known parameters relevant to the CFEL. It was found...

    A free electron laser design is considered in which coherent radiation is generated during the flight of a bunched electron beam near a periodic metal target ("Smith-Parsell radiation). If the target (array) is placed in a special resonator, optical feedback can be realized. It is proposed to...
