This paper presents the traveling-wave free-electron maser (TWFEM) experiment conducted at Tel Aviv University. The TWFEM [E. Jerby, Phys. Rev. Res. A44 (1991) 703] is a synergism of the traveling-wave tube (TWT) and the free-electron maser (FEM). It incorporates both a periodic waveguide and a wiggler. The slow-wave TWFEM interaction requires relatively low electron beam energy (10 keV in our experiment). The paper describes the TWFEM principle and its experimental implementation.
