Abstract : The major activities are listed; 1. Design a single-cell accelerating cavity suitable for a modest power FEL system, and demonstrate by operation of a prototype cavity the feasibility of achieving gradients exceeding 6 MeV/m.; 2. Find a geometry for a single harmonic cavity that is suitable for use in the harmonic injector system. Operate a prototype harmonic cavity at high gradient. 3. Design an injector system incorporating harmonic acceleration and magnetic bunching; 4. Construct and test a prototype injector system incorporating harmonic acceleration with an output energy of approximately 3 MeV; and 5. Study the feasibility of a compact and efficient accelerator suitable for FEL systems that utilizes beam recirculation both for energy doubling and for energy recovery.
