A compact electron accelerator suitable for Compton source applications is in design at the Center for Accelerator Science at Old Dominion University and Jefferson Lab. The design includes a KE=1.55 MeV low-emittance, optimized superconducting electron gun; a 23.45 MeV linac with multi-spoke 4.2 K superconducting cavities; and transport that combines magnetic longitudinal bunch compressor and transverse final focus. We report on the initial designs of each element, including end to end simulations with ASTRA and elegant, and expected beam parameters.
