What does FEL mean or stand for ?
The FEL is one of the most expensive laser lights on the planet,contrary to its name.It is produced in only a a select laboratories because of its extreme nature of radiations.It can produce almost the entire array of light spectrum right down to wavelengths of 01.5 nm.
Unlike other traditional lasers that use a stimulated light source from a material.In the FEL,the electron beam is passed through a magnetic source known as the Undulator.This radiation that is produced is known as synchrotron radiation.
The reason why it is known as a “Free electron” laser is because its frequency can be altered to produce different kinds of invisible and visible radiation of very high magnitudes.
