  The continuous wave electron accelerator ELBE is upgraded to generate short and highly charged electron bunches (~200fs duration, up to 1 nC) . In the last years a prototype of an optical synchronization system using a mode locked fiber laser has been build up at ELBE which is now in commissioning phase. The stabilized pulse train can be used for new methods of electron bunch diagnostics like bunch arrival time measurements with the potential of femtosecond resolution. At ELBE a bunch arrival time monitor (BAM) has been designed and tested at the accelerator. The contribution will show the design of the BAM and first measurement results at the ELBE accelerator.
