LEUTL: Low Energy Undulator Test Line (operation: 1997-2002)

The Low Energy Undulator Test Line (LEUTL) is an experimental hall and associated hardware that was built shortly after the completion of the Advanced Photon Source, and was attached to the APS so that the linac beam could be delivered to the LEUTL hall. LEUTL was configured as a Free Electron Laser (FEL) and was the first experiment to demonstrate Self Amplified Spontaneous Emission in the visible and UV.
