  In order to meet the increasing demand for XFEL user operation, the second undulator beamline (BL2) will be installed during the 2014 summer shutdown at SACLA. Following the installation of BL2, a pulse by pulse electron beam distribution system composed of a kicker and a DC twin-septum magnet, which are currently under development, is planned be installed in January 2015. To distribute the electron beam on a bunch-to-bunch basis, the electron beam is deflected into 0 and ±10 mrad directions at 60 Hz by the kicker, and then the DC twin-septum magnet augments the separation angle to ±50 mrad. The kicker magnet is driven by a 60 Hz trapezoidal waveform and stability less than 30 ppm (peak-peak) has been achieved. This pulse by pulse distribution system will be also used for the beam injection to the upgraded low emittance ring of SPring-8 (SPring-8-II) in future. Since the SPring-8-II storage ring has a small dynamic aperture, low emittance is required for the injection beam. Also the beam injection in parallel with the XFEL operation enables to save the running cost of the injector during top-up operation.

  In order to improve the spectral and temporal properties of XFEL, the self-seeding option based on the transmission crystal optics has been implemented in SACLA since 2012. The self-seeding setup composed of four dipole magnets that can generate up to 50 fs temporal delay and a diamond single crystal with the thickness of 180 micro-m has been installed at the position of the 9th undulator segment, which has been moved downstream. In 2013, the installation of all the components has been completed in August and the commissioning has been started in October. After a number of tuning processes such as the beam collimation and undulator K-value optimization, significant spectral narrowing has been confirmed at 10 keV with the C(400) Bragg reflection. The spectral bandwidth of seeded FEL is about 3 eV, which is nearly one order narrower than that of SASE measured without the diamond crystal. The peak spectral intensity of seeded FEL is about 5 times higher than that of SASE. Systematic optimization on beam properties is now in progress towards experimental use of seeded XFELs. This talk gives the overview of the plan, achieved results and ongoing R&D.
