  Ultrafast Electron Diffraction (UED) is a powerful tool to find 3-dimensional structures and dynamical transitions of chemical or biological samples with a femtosecond-range temporal resolution and an angstrom-range spatial resolution. Due to the columbic field of electrons, UED can provide a higher cross section and a higher time resolution than those of the ultrafast photon diffraction with X-ray Free Electron Lasers (XFELs). In this paper, we describe the design concepts and ASTRA simulation results of a compact linac for an UED facility.
