Active Vibration Control for Free Electron Lasers

Abstract

This thesis is concerned with active control methods for stabilizing the mirror vibrations of free-electron laser weapons on ships so that the laser continues to deliver full power. Alignment of the mirrors is critical for proper operation because the electron beam and optical mode must substantially overlap. The alignment is expected to be difficult to… (More)
