Characterization of an 800 nm SASE FEL At Saturation
VISA (Visible to Infrared SASE Amplifier) is an FEL (Free Electron Laser) designed to saturate
at a radiation wavelength of 800 nm within a 4-m long, strong focusing undulator. Large gain is
achieved by driving the FEL with the 72 MeV, high brightness beam of BNL's Accelerator Test
Facility (ATF). We present measurements that demonstrate saturation in addition to the frequency
spectrum of the FEL radiation. Energy, gain length and spectral characteristics are compared and
shown to agree with simulation and theoretical predictions.
