  The commissioning of the first SwissFEL undulator line (Aramis) is planned for the beginning of 2017. Each undulator is equipped with a 5-axis camshaft system to remotely adjust its position in the micrometer range and a gap drive system to set K-values between 0.1 and 1.8. In the following paper the beam-based alignment of the undulator with respect to the golden orbit, the definition of look-up tables for the local correction strategy (minimization of undulator field errors), the fine-tuning of the K-values as well as the setting of the phase shifters are addressed. When applicable both electron beam and light based methods are presented and compared.

  The first undulator prototype (U15) was assembled and magnetically tested. The instrumentation and the algorithms developed for the undulator optimization are presented and a comparison among different approaches is reviewed. The magnetic measurement results before and after the installation of the vacuum components are discussed. The summary of the undulator test with 100 MeV electron beam is presented and the impact of the radiation on the magnetics is addressed.  
THP085 Commissioning and Results from the Bunch Arrival-time Monitor Downstream the Bunch Compressor at the SwissFEL Test Injector 933

  A high bandwidth Bunch Arrival-Time Monitor has been commissioned at the Swiss FEL test injector. A new acquisition front end allowing utilization of the ADC full dynamic range has been implemented. The resolution is measured as a function of the charge for different EOM front-ends. Downstream the magnetic chicane the bunch arrival time is sensitive to the amplitude and phases of the RF structures, responsible for creation of an energy chirp, used for bunch compression, as well as the ones of the harmonic cavity, used for phase space linearization. The time of flight as a function of the angle of the magnetic chicane has also been measured.
