  A Mid-Infrared Free Electron Laser (MIR-FEL) facility named as KU-FEL has been constructed for energy science in Institute of Advanced Energy, Kyoto University*. The accelerator of KU-FEL consists of an S-band 4.5-cell thermionic RF gun, a Dog-leg section for energy filtering, a 3-m traveling-wave type accelerator tube, 180-degree arc section for bunch compression and a hybrid undulator. We have already succeeded in lasing of the FEL from 5.5 to 14.5 micro-meter. Present status and recent activity for the FEL development will be presented in the conference.

  The stability of electron beam parameters such as position, energy etc. is very crucial for stable FEL operation. In Kyoto University MIR-FEL facility (KU-FEL), fluctuation of beam position and energy is caused by external fluctuations, such as the fluctuation in the cathode temperature of the thermionic RF-gun due to the back-streaming electrons, fluctuation of RF phase and amplitude, fluctuations of room and water temperatures, electric noises and so on. To monitor electron beam movement, we have already developed BPM system consisting of a 4-button electrode type BPM, a heterodyne detector, and CAMAC ADC in KU-FEL. By using this BPM system we have observed some correlations between external fluctuations and the beam position movements. In this conference, we will present the developed BPM system as well as the beam feedback system for stable KU-FEL operation.
