With the enhanced role for Free Electron Lasers for DoD Directed Energy applications, a Free Electron Lasers Conference was co-located with the Ultrashort Pulse Laser Workshop and the Solid State and Diode Laser Technology Review (SSDLTR) as part of the Advanced High-Power Lasers Review. The goals for this Conference included providing a unique opportunity to present and discuss military FEL technology, science and applications, and for this community to interact with leading scientists working in the broader range of non-DoD FEL science and technology. Accordingly, the Workshop contained sessions at Public Release, Limited Distribution, and Classified levels.
Enhancing FEL performance to the levels desired by DoD will benefit both the military and the broader research and industrial communities. This Conference provided a unique opportunity for all three of these groups to come together.
Registrants who met the participation criteria Advanced High-Power Lasers Meeting were able to attend sessions of all three meetings for a single registration fee. There was be a public release joint technical session available to all attendees of the Advanced High-Power Lasers Review.
