A survey of biophysical and biomedical applications of free-electron lasers (FEL) was discussed. It was found that the midinfrared SCA FEL and UV FELs based on storage rings were useful for one- and two-color spectroscopic investigations of biophysical proesses. The light source capabilities of FEL which include combinations of wavelength ranges and pulse structures were also elaborated.
