We explore the self-induced harmonic generation in Storage Ring Optical Klystron (SR OK) FEL devices. We use a numerical code which accounts for the SR OK FEL longitudinal dynamics, includes the laser pulse propagation, and gives an accurate image of the phenomenology of instabilities associated with the laser-electron beam interplay. The coherent harmonic generation evolution is developed using the bunching parameter theory. The analysis we develop yields the turn-by-turn evolution of the harmonics and provides an accurate physical insight into their dependence on the intracavity laser power. The results obtained with this code are considered with mainly a Q-switched configuration evaluated for an Elettra-like facility. © 2003 Elsevier Science B.V. All rights reserved.
