Abstract : Six years' research on the Columbia Free Electron Laser are summarized with an introduction and a selection of key reprints. Topics include: optical guiding, sideband instabilities, statistical properties of wiggler radiation, radiation pulses emitted from the FEL, superradiant and optical fiber models of radiation pulses, the inverse FEL accelerator experiment, angular steering of the FEL radiation pattern, and the travelling wave amplification of very short FEL pulses to very high power.
