How FERMI FEL works

FERMI is the free electron laser (FEL) facility located in the research centre Elettra Sincrotrone Trieste, Italy. This video shows its basic components and functioning, in the specific configuration of externally seeded FEL (High Gain Harmonic Generation), from the electron gun through the linear accelerator and the undulator, to the photon beamlines.
