Energy gain of trapped electrons in excess of 20 MeV has been demonstrated in an inverse-free-electron-laser (IFEL) accelerator experiment. A 14.5 MeV electron beam is copropagated with a 400 GW CO2 laser beam in a 50 cm long undulator strongly tapered in period and field amplitude. The Rayleigh range of the laser, approximately 1.8 cm, is much shorter than(More)
We report the observation of energy gain in excess of 20 MeV at the Inverse Free Electron Laser Accelerator experiment at the Neptune Laboratory at UCLA. A 14.5 MeV electron beam is injected in an undulator strongly tapered in period and field amplitude. The IFEL driver is a CO2 10.6 µm laser with power larger than 400 GW. The Rayleigh range of the laser, ∼(More)
Cadmium sulfide nanowires of 10-nm diameter, electrodeposited in porous anodic alumina films, exhibit an electronic bistability that can be harnessed for non-volatile memory. The current-voltage characteristics of the wires show two stable conductance states that are well-separated (conductances differ by more than 4 orders of magnitude) and long lived(More)
A high-power, frequency-tunable electrostatic free-electron maser, being developed at the FOM Institute for Plasma Physics "Rijnhuizen," shows lasing at various frequencies. An output power of 730 kW at 206 GHz is generated by a 7.2-A, 1.77-MeV electron beam, and 380 kW at 165 GHz is generated by a 7.4-A, 1.65-MeV electron beam. In the present experimental(More)
