  For both synchrotron light sources as SOLEIL and colliders, the emittance is one of the key parameters to increase the photon brightness and the beam luminosity. In order to decrease the emittance, the ring optics is built on very focusing lattices leading to large chromaticities and potential reduction of the dynamics aperture and momentum transverse acceptance. Thus, some facilities have installed damping wigglers in zero dispersion straight sections to relax the optics and to reach sub-nanometer horizontal emittances. This solution requires however tens or hundreds meters of insertion devices. For storage ring equipped with zero-gradient bending magnets, an alternative solution can be given by installing a single Robinson wiggler [1] in a dispersive section enabling to divide the emittance by a factor 2. The uniqueness of this wiggler results from the presence of an alternated gradient superimposed the main periodic magnetic field. This paper recalls the concept of the wiggler, presents the expected gain for SOLEIL storage ring with the impact on the linear optics and the brightness. A preliminary magnetic design is also proposed. [1] K.W. Robinson, Phys. Rev, p. 373 (1958).

  The paper introduces the first preliminary feasibility study made at SOLEIL towards a possible future upgrade of the lattice in furthermore reducing the horizontal emittance, so to raise the storage ring performance. The approach taken is to employ whatever emittance reduction methods available, by respecting the given constraints on the lattice structure and the optics, particularly the circumference, insertion device straights, the required optics behavior as well as its tunability. Specifically, the possibility of introducing superbends into the double bend lattice is pursued, which are beneficial to hard X-ray users and could simultaneously help reducing the emittance thanks to its longitudinally varying field profile. Although the present study shall mainly focus on the linear properties of the optical solutions found, optimization of nonlinear optics is also discussed in view of the large dependence of the latter on the former.

  The low momentum compaction factor (alpha) operation has been recently established on the SOLEIL Storage Ring. Both time resolved X-ray and THz radiation user communities are taking benefit from a hybrid filling pattern with a 4.7 ps RMS bunch length. At a value of 1.7 10-5 (nominal alpha /25) and a current per bunch of 65 μA, stable THz radiation is produced in the range of 8 - 20 cm-1 (measurements and comparison with Coherent Synchrotron Radiation (CSR) modeling are reported elsewhere*, **). Several low-alpha optics have been investigated and the optics presented at IPAC’11 has been selected for the operation. This paper presents the comprehensive experimental characterization of this optics. Specificities of the low-alpha operation, driven by the very demanding user experiments, are reviewed: closed orbit stability issues, extremely tight injected current step when refilling which implies a specific Linac tuning, low current diagnostics optimization, short bunch measurements, insertion devices effect on the CSR characteristics and radiation safety aspects justified by beam losses at injection.
