A Cerenkov Free-Electron Laser (CFEL) has the advantage that the operating frequency increases with decreasing electron beam energy. The low beam energy allows for the construction of compact devices. We have designed and constructed such a device with a footprint of 0.5 m x 1.5 m, an operating frequency of 50 GHz and a design output power of 1 kW CW. We will present the overall design and experimental set-up, and first experimental results.
