DEFINITION
Free Electron Laser

A type of laser which generates radiation by the interaction of an electron beam with a static magnetic or electric field. Loosely speaking, free-electron laser technology resembles and evolved from that used by particle accelerators ("atom smashers"). Lasers which are not free electron lasers are bound electron lasers.
