  A new single pass national FEL test facility, CLARA, is proposed to be constructed at Daresbury Laboratory in the UK. The aim of CLARA is to develop a normal conducting test accelerator able to generate longitudinally and transversely bright electron bunches and to use these bunches in the experimental production of stable, synchronized, ultra short photon pulses of coherent light from a single pass FEL with techniques directly applicable to the future generation of light source facilities. In addition the facility will be an ideal test bed for demonstrating innovative technologies such as high repetition rate normal conducting RF linacs and advanced undulator designs. This paper will describe the design of CLARA, pointing out the flexible features that will be incorporated to allow multiple novel FEL schemes to be proven.

  Two Free-Electron Laser (FEL) schemes have been proposed, for the generation of attosecond pulse trains* and for the improvement of the longitudinal coherence of SASE FELs**, in which repeated electron delays are implemented within the undulator lattice. To obtain the maximum performance and flexibility from these schemes it is advantageous to use an electron delay line that satisfies the isochronicity conditions, as well as being compact, modular and, ideally, variable. In this paper we present initial designs for such a system, along with simulations of its performance. We investigate both in-undulator and out-of-undulator designs, and compare the applicability of each for various aspects of the FEL design, as well as commenting on the mechanical and magnetic implications of the schemes.

  Recent UK government funding has facilitated the implementation of a unique accelerator test facility which can provide enabling infrastructures targeted for the development and testing of novel and compact accelerator technologies, specifically through partnership with industry and aimed at addressing applications for medicine, health, security, energy and industrial processing. The infrastructure provision on the Daresbury Science and Innovation Campus (DSIC) will permit research into areas of accelerator technologies which have the potential to revolutionise the cost, compactness and efficiency of such systems. The main element of the infrastructure will be a high performance and flexible electron beam injector facility, feeding customised state-of-the-art testing enclosures and associated support infrastructure. The facility operating parameters and implementation status will be described, along with primary areas of commercialised technology development opportunities.
