  The Next Generation Light Source (NGLS) is a design concept for a multibeamline soft x-ray FEL array powered by a ~2.4 GeV CW superconducting linear accelerator, operating with a 1 MHz bunch repetition rate. This paper describes the concepts under development for a linac operating at 1.3 GHZ and based on minimal modifications to the design of ILC cryomodules in order to leverage the extensive R&D that resulted in the ILC design. Due to the different nature of the two applications, particular attention is given here to high loaded Q operation andμphonics control, as well as high reliability and expected up time.

The Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL) is developing design concepts for a multi-beamline soft x-ray FEL array powered by a superconducting linear accelerator, operating with a high bunch repetition rate of approximately one MHz. Electron bunches supplied by a high-brightness, high-repetition-rate photocathode electron gun are distributed by a beam spreader, designed to deliver individual bunches from a CW linac to an array of independently configurable FEL beamlines with nominal bunch rates up to 100 kHz in each FEL, and with even pulse spacing. We describe recent developments in the technical choices, design and parameters of the spreader system and its main components.
