Abstract

We describe the newly created free-electron laser facility situated at the University of Strathclyde in Scotland, which will produce ultra-short pulses of high-power electromagnetic radiation in the terahertz frequency range. The FEL will be based on a 4 MeV photoinjector producing picosecond 1 nC electron pulses and driven by a frequency tripled Ti:sapphire laser thus ensuring synchronism with conventional laser based tuneable sources. A synchronised multi-terawatt Ti:sapphire laser amplifier will be used in the study of laser/plasma/electron beam interactions and as a plasma based X-ray source. A substantial user commitment has already been made in support of the programme.
