Caption: Free electron laser. Technician operating the Free Electron Laser (FEL). The FEL, unlike conventional lasers, is not limited to a single wavelength of light and so has a range of industrial and scientific uses. The FEL's beam of light can be used to alter the properties of a material's surface, fabricate microscopic machinery or analyse the composition of a sample. The laser is capable of producing a continuous beam or a pulse shorter than that achievable by normal lasers, allowing very precise results. The FEL is also far more efficient than conventional lasers, allowing cost-effective uses which could replace environmentally-harmful chemicals.
