Free electron laser high gain devices

High gain free electron laser devices, operating in the self amplified spontaneous emission regime, are under construction and was designed as the next generation of synchrotron radiation sources. In this paper we discuss the relevant physical aspects and derive simple relations for laser and higher order harmonic power, which can usefully be exploited in the preliminary design of these sources
