  The Compact Linear Collider (CLIC) will require ultra-low emittance electron and positron beams. The targeted emittance will be achieved by radiative damping in the CLIC damping rings. For an efficient damping high-field short-period superconducting damping wigglers will be employed. In the conceptual design phase of CLIC, the basic layout of these wigglers has been elaborated at CERN. In the course of the CLIC technical feasibility studies a full-scale damping wiggler prototype will be installed and tested in the ANKA storage ring. The device is currently under design and construction at the Budker Institute of Nuclear Physics, Russia. Above the magnetic requirements, the main design challenges for the prototype are scalability –- particularly of the cooling concept –-, modularity and the capability of sustaining a high radiative heat load. The experiments at ANKA aim at a validation of the technical concepts applied to meet these requirements. Beyond that an extended experimental program on beam dynamics and alternative technical solutions is envisaged. This contribution gives an overview over the current status of the project and the further planning.

The transport and matching of electron beams generated by a Laser Wakefield Accelerator (LWFA) is a major challenge due to their large energy spread and divergence. The divergence in the range of one milli-radian at energies of some 100 MeV calls for strong focusing magnets. At the same time a chromatic correction of the magnets is needed due to the relative energy spread of a few percent. This contribution discusses in particular the layout of the beam transport optics for a diagnostic beam-line at the LWFA in Jena, Germany. The aim of this optics is to match the betatron functions and the non-zero dispersion to the x-dependent flux density amplitude of a non-planar undulator such that monochromatic undulator radiation is generated despite the large energy spread. The transport line is realized as a dogleg chicane involving several strong focusing quadrupoles. The chromatic error is compensated by additional sextupoles. To keep the setup as compact as possible the magnets are designed as combined function magnets. In this contribution the design and optimization of the transport optics, as well as its realization are presented.
