In this paper, we show that Cerenkov free electron laser oscillators can be studied using a treatment closely similar to that of the magnetic undulator counterpart. We prove that the saturation dynamics can be modeled by strictly similar formulae and that also for Cerenkov Free Electron Laser oscillator the saturation intensity is a quantity of paramount importance. © 2005 Elsevier B.V.
