In theory free electron laser is an extremely adaptable of light as it can be tuned to a wide range of wavelengths. Based on imparting energy from electron beam to light the resulting intense beam of light can probe crystalline and bio molecular structures. A review on physics of free electron laser and its potential applications has been presented.
