Abstract An experiment to produce 1-MeV gamma rays via Compton back-scattering of infrared photons on 250-MeV electron bunches is currently in preparation at the Fermilab Accelerator Science & Technology (FAST) facility. To increase the gamma-ray flux the energy of the infrared laser pulses are planned to be amplified within the interaction region using a resonant cavity. This passive amplifier composed of a Fabry-Perot cavity will allow the laser pulse bunches to coherently and constructively stack. Our estimates, based on theoretical models, show that the laser pulse energy can be increased from approximately 1-2 mJ at the exit of the last active amplifier to 5 -10 mJ at the interaction point when the laser repetition rate is set at the nominal value of 3 MHz. This paper details the cavity design option(s) and associated wave-optic simulations.
