The threshold conditions for an FELWI Conference Paper uri icon


  • A threshold condition for amplification without inversion in a free-electron laser without inversion (FELWI) is determined. This condition is found to be too severe for the effect to be observed in an earlier suggested scheme because a threshold intensity of the field to be amplified appears to be too high. This indicates that alternative schemes have to be found for making the creation of an FELWI realistic. © 2010 The Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences.
