Abstract

An investigation of the Compton free electron laser (FEL) oscillator from the low into the high gain regime is presented. The one-dimensional Maxwell-Pendulum equations, describing the radiation-electron beam evolution in an FEL, are used to develop a simple, computationally efficient method of modeling the radiation evolution. The maximum efficiency for a range of values of the gain parameter G is calculated
