  Non-destructive electron bunch arrival-time monitors (BAMs) with resolution <10 fs, sensitivity down to 10 pC and high intrinsic bandwidth for double bunch detection are required for reliable operation of SwissFEL. To achieve this ultimate goal, such a monitor based on a Mach-Zehnder electro-optical intensity modulator has been under development at the SwissFEL Test Injector. The high timing precision is derived by a stable pulsed optical reference system. The first BAM is located before the bunch compressor where the bunch energy is 230 MeV and the pulse length is approximately 3 ps. At this position, the bunch arrival time is sensitive to the laser- and gun timing. In this paper, we report on the commissioning of the RF- and optical front ends, the first arrival-time jitter and drift measurements with the entire system, as well as correlation of the arrival-time with different machine and environmental parameters. We achieve a resolution of 20 fs down to 60 pC.

  The SwissFEL Injector Test Facility (SITF) has been equipped with numerous prototype diagnostics (BPMs, screen monitors, wire scanners, optical synchrotron radiation monitor, compression (THz) monitor, bunch arrival time monitor, EO spectral decoding monitor, charge and loss monitor) specifically designed for the low charge SwissFEL operation modes. The design of the diagnostics systems and recent measurement results will be presented.

  In a collaboration between CERN, PSI and Sincrotrone Trieste (ST), a series of four multipurpose X-band accelerating structures has been designed and fabricated. These feature integrated wake field monitors (WFMs), which are used to measure the alignment (offset and tilt) between structure and beam. One structure has recently been installed in the SwissFEL Injector Test facility (SITF) at PSI. The WFM front end electronics will be developed within the EuCard2 framework, so for the measurements described in this paper we used the raw WFM signals. We compare these measurements to the theoretical results obtained via an equivalent circuit model used in the design and numerical calculations. The beam tests show that by minimizing the WFM signals, the emittance dilution given by the transverse wakes, crucial because of the small aperture of the structure, is minimized as well.
