  The LCLS-II with its high repetition rate and high quality beam will be capable of driving an X-ray free electron laser oscillator at higher harmonics in the hard X-ray regime (0.1 nm). The oscillator consists of a low loss X-ray crystal cavity using diamond Bragg crystals with meV bandwidth. The expected average spectral flux has been estimated to be at least two orders of magnitude greater than present synchrotron-based sources with highly stable, coherent pulses of duration 1 ps or less for applications in Mössbauer spectroscopy and inelastic x-ray scattering. A more detailed study of the start up of a fifth-harmonic X-ray FEL oscillator at LCLS-II will be presented with full, time-dependent simulations.

Issues and progress in R&D toward realizing an X-ray FEL oscillator will be discussed, including electron injector optimization, X-ray power density evolution on Bragg crystals throughout the lasing process, experimental efforts for testing radiation damage, evaluating the performance of compound refractive lenses (CRLs) as the focusing elements, and the basic considerations for mechanical layout. These will be discussed in the context of a concrete implementation scheme [*] using the 4 GeV superconducting linac to be constructed at the LCLS-II. Time-dependent simulations of harmonic XFELO performance is discussed in another contribution to this conference by Zemella, et al.
