  The conceptual design of CLARA, a novel FEL test facility focussed on the generation of ultrashort photon pulses with extreme levels of stability and synchronisation is described. The ultimate aim of CLARA is to experimentally demonstrate, for the first time, that sub-coherence length pulse generation with FELs is viable. The results will translate directly to existing and future X-Ray FELs, enabling them to generate attosecond pulses, thereby extending the science capabilities of these intense light sources. 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.

  We propose a Plasma Accelerator Research Station (PARS) based at proposed FEL test facility Compact Linear Accelerator for Research and Applications (CLARA) at Daresbury lab. The idea is to use the relativistic electron beam from CLARA, to investigate some key issues in electron beam transport and in the electron beam driven plasma wakefield acceleration, e.g. the two bunch acceleration for CLARA beam energy doubling, high transformer ratio, long bunch self-modulation and the related beam instabilities. This paper discusses the feasibility studies of electron beam parameters to meet the requirements for beam driven wakefield acceleration and the possible experiments which can be conducted at PARS beam line.

  The UK is developing a short period, narrow aperture, planar superconducting undulator that is planned to be installed and tested in the 3 GeV Diamond Light Source in 2014. This paper will describe the main parameters of the undulator and the key design choices that have been made. First measurements will be presented of a 19 period test module and also the commissioning of the 2K cryogenic turret.

  The 42km long Drive Beam Decelerator for the Compact Linear Collider (CLIC) requires over 41,000 quadrupole magnets. ASTeC and CERN are investigating the possibility of permanent magnet quadrupoles (PMQs) to reduce running costs and heat load inside the CLIC tunnel. A prototype of a high-strength adjustable PMQ has been built, based on a simple concept using two moving sections each containing a pair of large permanent magnets. The gradient can be adjusted within a range of 15-60 T/m (3-15T integrated gradient). The prototype has undergone extensive magnetic testing at Daresbury Laboratory and CERN, and performs well in line with expectations. A prototype of the low-strength version (0.9-9T) is currently under construction.

  The EBTF facility will provide enabling infrastructures targeted at the development and testing of novel and compact accelerator technologies, specifically through partnership with industry and aimed at addressing applications in medicine, health, security, energy and industrial processing. The facility has now been implemented at Daresbury Laboratory and the commissioning of the critical accelerator systems has been performed. The facility is now preparing for first exploitation with partnering industries that will be able to utilise the electron beam parameters available on EBTF to either demonstrate new techniques and/or processes or otherwise develop new technologies for future commercial realisation.
