A 5 MeV FEL facility devoted to the testing of compact FEL devices has been realized at the ENEA Research Center of Frascati. In previous experiments power up to 50 W in 4 μs pulses has been generated in a Cherenkov FEL at wavelengths ranging from 0.8 to 1.6 mm using different dielectric guides. Current activities include the testing of short-period undulators in a small size waveguide FEL designed to operate in the sub-millimeter region. Operating characteristics and predicted performance are presented. © 1992.
