  In a collaboration between CERN, PSI and Sincrotrone Trieste (ST), a series of four multipurpose X-band accelerating structures has been designed and fabricated. The structures have 72 cells with a phase advance of 5 pi/6 and include upstream and downstream wakefield monitors to measure the beam alignment. We give an overview of the electrical and mechanical design and describe the fabrication of the first units. We also present the results of the low level RF tests. Using measurements of the internal cell to cell misalignment, the residual transverse wake and the noise floor of the wake field monitors are computed. Furthermore, we present the first experiences running the structures under high power.

  FERMI@Elettra is a fourth generation light source facility presently in commissioning at the Elettra Laboratory in Trieste, Italy. It is based on an S-band (3 GHz), 1.5 GeV normal conducting (NC) linac, that provides ultra short e-bunches with high peak current, using two stages of magnetic compression. To linearize the beam longitudinal phase space and to improve the compression process, a forth harmonic RF structure (12 GHz) has been installed downstream the first magnetic chicane. This paper reports the RF activation of the structure and the preliminary tests performed on the beam.

The FERMI@Elettra seeded Free Electron Laser has provided the first photons to the experimental stations during 2011. The first FEL line in operation is FEL-1, covering the wavelength range between 100 nm and 20 nm. The facility will be opened to users by the end of 2012. In the meantime the installation of the second FEL line, FEL-2 covering the higher energy range down to 4 nm, is progressing on schedule and first tests have started. A description of the status of the project is presented here.

  FERMI@Elettra, the fourth generation light source facility at the Elettra Laboratory in Trieste, Italy, foresees an X-band accelerating section downstream the first bunch compressor to linearize the beam longitudinal phase space. The RF power for the structure is produced by the SLAC XL5 klystron, a scaled version of the XL4 tube, operating at the European frequency of 11.992 GHz. The 50 Hz klystron modulator is based on a standard pulse forming network (PFN) design, with thyratron and pulse transformer, for which there is already an extensive experience at the Elettra laboratory. We report about the installation and tests of the first high power RF station.
