    Abstract

    An energy-recovery linac (ERL) for a high-power free-electron laser (FEL) has been designed and constructed at Japan Atomic Energy Research Institute (JAERI). The construction of the ERL was completed and first energy-recovery operation and first FEL lasing have been demonstrated. We present the design overview and the performance of the JAERI-ERL. Future plans towards a 10-kW FEL are also described.
