    The Duke Free-Electron Laser Laboratory (DFELL) has recently completed two major accelerator/light source development projects - we successfully commissioned the world's first distributed optical klystron FEL (DOK-1 FEL) and a new 0.24 - 1.2 GeV booster synchrotron. The DOK-1 FEL has a much improved FEL gain compared with two-wiggler optical klystrons. This allows the DOK-1 FEL to become a versatile light source for UV-VUV operation and as a driver for a high-flux Compton gamma-source. The top-off booster injector for the Duke storage ring is part of the upgrade project of High Intensity Gamma-ray Source (HIGS), a facility jointly developed by the DFELL and Triangle Universities Nuclear Laboratory. The accelerator and light source development has created new opportunities for accelerator physics research. In this paper, we will report our recent progress in accelerator and light source development as well as the ongoing accelerator physics research programs at the DFELL. ©2007 IEEE.
