Abstract : There are a variety of methods for generating radiation in the range from infrared to gamma rays , and four different techniques using charged particle beams will be presented. The first three are considered as spontaneous emissions sources, and the last as a stimulated source. None of the approaches are likely to be suitable for insertion in a storage ring, since they all involve a significant alteration in particle trajectories.
