Abstract : The Naval Research Lab. (NRL) Free Electron Laser (FEL) program proposed to use the NRL electron linear accelerator (LINAC) as a source of electrons for its studies. The FEL experiment will place very exacting demands on the parameters of the electron beam from the LINAC. Therefore a careful study of the present operation of the LINAC was necessary in order to determine exactly where and how modifications and improvements could be made to best meet the needs of the FEL program. To do this the system was considered in the following segments: Electron injection electronics, Electron beam injection hardware, Accelerating structure, First 90 degree bend and energy definition, Transport from room 105a to room 103a, Second 90 degree deflection, Beam dump system.
