  Future synchrotron light source based on a 3-GeV energy recovery linac (ERL) is under proposal at KEK, and we are conducting extensive R&D efforts. To demonstrate reliable operations of key components for the ERL project, as well as to demonstrate the generation of ultra-low emittance beams, we are constructing the Compact ERL (cERL). The cERL will also be used to demonstrate the generation of brilliant gamma-rays that is useful for analyzing radioisotopes. Key components, such as a photocathode DC gun, both cryomodules for the injector and the main linac, rf sources, magnets, and beam instrumentations, are under fabrication. Construction of radiation shielding for the cERL started in December, 2011. We report up-to-date status of the cERL.

  After the earthquake of March 11, two light sources of KEK, PF ring and PF-AR, have recovered the regular operation from October, 2011. We installed tandem variably-polarized undulators at PF ring in 2009. Recently, the orbit switching system has been completed with sufficient feed-forward orbit compensation at 10-Hz. PF ring is usually operated at 450 mA with a top-up injection using the pulsed sextupole magnet instead of the conventional kicker magnets. The transverse and longitudinal instabilities are suppressed by a digital feedback system using the iGp signal processor. In the longitudinal direction, we observed unstable quadrupole mode oscillation which could not be controlled by the feedback system. We had applied the phase modulation of the main RF cavity to stabilize the quadrupole oscillation before. Old-type RF-shielded gate valves damaged by the earthquake were removed from the ring during the summer maintenance. In the operation after autumn, the quadrupole oscillation can be cured by dividing the bunch train of partial-filling. Without the phase modulation, the effective brightness of SR beam has been improved especially at beam lines of finite dispersion function.
