In this paper, design studies for the proof-of-principle experiment of the recently proposed phase-merging enhanced harmonic generation (PEHG) mechanism are presented. A dogleg and a new designed transverse gradient undulator should be added in the undulator system of SDUV-FEL to perform the phase-merging effect. With the help of 3D simulation codes, we show the possible performance of PEHG with the realistic parameters of SDUV-FEL.

  Chirped pulse amplification has been shown theoretically possible to generate ultra-short high intensity radiation pulses in a seeded FEL. To demonstrate the theoretical predictions, a CPA-CHG experiment is under preparation based on the SDUV-FEL recently. We will show the experiment layout, optical design studies and some preliminary measurement results of the optical systems in this paper.

Corrugated structures [*] hold promising prospects as beam linearizer, beam de-chirper and beam stabilizer for a high brightness LINAC, and thus enhance the FEL performance significantly. So far, several electron beam test experiments of corrugated structure have been carried out on LINACs at PAL [**] and BNL [***]. More recently, a passive control experiment of FEL spectrum, by using a pair of corrugated planes has been successfully accmoplished at SDUV-FEL, which is the first real FEL experimental demonstration of such wakefield structure applications. The physical design, numerical simulations, the vacuum chamber manufacture and the experiment results are presented in this paper.

Many attractive experiments including HGHG, EEHG, cascaded HGHG, chirped pulse amplification etc. are carried out or planned on the Shanghai Deep Ultra-Violet Free Electron Laser test facility. These experiments are all utilizing a laser as seed, and need precise synchronization between the electron beam and the laser pulse. We will describe the history and current status of the seeding and synchronization scheme for the SDUV-FEL together with some related experiment results in this paper.
