Abstract

The Accelerator Test Facility (ATF) at Brookhaven National Laboratory (BNL) is an accelerator and beam physics user facility capable of producing a high-brightness, 70-MeV electron beam. Currently, a high-gain harmonic generation (HGHG) free-electron laser (FEL) experiment is underway at the ATF. This is a collaborative effort between BNL and the Advanced Photon Source (APS). The experiment consists of two phases: 1) self-amplified spontaneous emission (SASE) and 2) HGHG. Here, a brief introduction to the HGHG theory, measurements in the SASE phase, the recent modifications in preparation for the HGHG phase, and future plans will be discussed.
