Abstract The ALS-U upgrade promises to deliver diffraction limited performance throughout the soft x-ray range by lowering the horizontal emittance by a factor of 40 compared to the current ALS. One of the consequences of producing a small emittance is a small dynamic aperture, although the momentum acceptance will remain large enough for acceptable beam lifetime. To overcome this challenge, ALS-U will use on-axis swap-out injection to exchange bunch trains between the storage ring and an accumulator ring. On-axis swapout injection requires special fast pulsers and state-of-the-art stripline kicker magnets. This paper reports on the results of the on-axis swap-out injection R&D program, including beam tests of a complete stripline kicker/pulser system on the current ALS and the development of methods to speed up beam based commissioning after the upgrade shutdown.
