One of the concepts for the next generation of linac-driven FELs is a cw superconducting linac driving an electron beam with MHz repetition rates. The beam is then switched into an array of independently configurable FELs. The demand for high brightness beams and the high rep-rate presents a number of challenges for the instrumentation and diagnostics. The high rep-rate also presents opportunities for increased beam stability because of the ability for much higher sampling rates for beam-based feedbacks. In this paper, we present our plans for instrumentation and diagnostics for such a machine.

  The APEX project aims to the construction of a high brightness high repetition rate photo-injector at LBNL. In its first phase a 750 keV electron bunch is produced at a maximum repetition rate of 1 MHz, with an adjustable charge per bunch spanning the pC-to-nC region. A load lock system is foreseen to test different cathodes without the need of breaking the vacuum and the downstream diagnostic is used to characterize the photo-emitted beam brightness. In the initial phase the main effort is directed toward the measurement of photocurrent, dark current, thermal emittance and electron beam kinetic energy. In a successive phase, diagnostic for full 6D phase space characterization of space charge dominated beams will be added to the beamline. We report and discuss the present diagnostic beamline layout, first beam measurements and future upgrades.

We report on the beam dynamics studies and optimization methods for a high-repetition (1 MHz) photoinjector based on a VHF normal conducting electron source. The simultaneous goals of beam compression and preservation of 6-dimensional beam brightness have to be achieved in the injector, in order to accommodate a linac driven FEL light source. For this, a parallel, multiobjective optimization algorithm is used. We discuss the relative merits of different injector design points, as well as the constraints imposed on the beam dynamics by technical considerations such as the high repetition rate.

LBNL is developing design concepts for a multi-beamline soft x-ray FEL array powered by a superconducting linear accelerator, operating with a high bunch repetition rate of approximately one MHz. The cw superconducting linear accelerator is supplied by an injector based on a high-brightness, high-repetition-rate photocathode electron gun. Electron bunches are distributed from the linac to the array of independently configurable FEL beamlines with nominal bunch rates up to 100 kHz in each FEL, and with even pulse spacing. Individual FELs may be configured for different modes of operation, and each may produce high peak and average brightness x-rays with a flexible pulse format, and with pulse durations ranging from sub-femtoseconds to hundreds of femtoseconds. In this paper we describe conceptual design studies and optimizations. We describe recent developments in the design and performance parameters, and progress in R&D activities.

The Advanced Photo-injector Experiment (APEX) at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory is focused on the development of a high-brightness high-repetition rate (MHz-class) electron injector for X-ray FEL applications. The injector is based on a new concept gun, utilizing a normal conducting 186 MHz RF cavity operating in cw mode in conjunction with high quantum efficiency photocathodes capable of delivering the required repetition rates with available laser technology. The APEX activities are staged in 3 main phases. In Phases 0 and I, the gun will be tested at its nominal energy of 750 keV and several different photocathodes are tested at full repetition rate. In Phase II, a pulsed linac will be added for accelerating the beam at several tens of MeV to reduce space charge effects and measure the high-brightness performance of the gun when integrated in an injector scheme. At Phase II energies, the radiation shielding configuration of APEX limits the repetition rate to a maximum of several Hz. Phase 0 is under commissioning, Phase I under installation, and initial activities for Phase II are underway. This paper presents an update on the status of these activities.
