A photon-electron dynamics laboratory is being proposed at National Tsinghua University, Taiwan. The mission of the proposed laboratory is to conduct advanced research on free-electron laser, inverse free-electron laser, and laser-driven particle acceleration. We discuss in this paper the design study of the Stanford high efficiency FEL and the reconfigured Stanford/TRW wiggler in the proposed laboratory. The Stanford high efficiency FEL is to demonstrate a 19% beam-to-laser efficiency. The reconfigured, 1-m Stanford/TRW wiggler may serve as an inverse FEL that provides 1.5-μm bunched electrons for various kinds of laser-driven acceleration experiments.
