The Colorado State University (CSU) Accelerator Facility will include a 6-MeV L-Band (1.3 GHz) electron linear accelerator (linac) with a free-electron laser (FEL) system capable of producing Terahertz (THz) radiation, a laser laboratory, a microwave test laboratory, and a magnetic test laboratory. The photocathode-driven linac will be used in conjunction with a hybrid undulator capable of producing THz radiation. Here, a summary of the systems used at the CSU Accelerator Facility is discussed. The building construction is completed and equipment move-in has begun. The first beam is expected to occur by mid 2015.
