ABSTRACT
In this letter, we propose and analyze an oscillator configuration of a new laser, called free-electron cyclotron resonance laser, which basically converts synchrotron radiation to a coherent oscillation. In this laser, unlike the harmonic gyrotron based on the interaction of axially propagating electromagnetic wave with an electron beam, light wave propagates transverse to an electron beam. It is shown that the device can generate light output at a wavelength of 10.6 μm or shorter by the interaction of only about a 12 MeV electron beam with extremely high harmonics. Expressions for harmonic linear electron efficiency and start-up current are obtained.
