The basic principles of free electron generators of coherent radiation and the practical considerations related to the development of far infrared and sub-millimeter wave sources are discussed in this paper. The attention is focused on compact devices, which reduce the size and cost issue. A review of the main results obtained at the Frascati FEL Facility is presented together with the planned experiments.
