Abstract

This paper presents an investigation of the Compton free-electron-laser oscillator from the low- into the high-gain regime. The one-dimensional "Maxwell-pendulum" equations, describing the radiation/electron-beam evolution in a 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.
