FREE ELECTRON LASERS AND OTHER ADVANCED SOURCES OF LIGHT: Scientific Research Opportunities
The development of nonlinear materials for extending the wavelength capabilities of laboratory lasers deserves support in both universities and industry (e.g., through the Small Business Innovation Research program). Support for this activity should receive a high priority, as even a modest investment is likely to have a considerable impact on scientific research.
In the near-infrared, visible, and ultraviolet regions, support for additional free electron lasers should receive relatively low priority with respect to support of conventional lasers and with respect to support for free electron lasers in other wavelength regions.
