  The IR-FEL on the ALICE test facility in the UK first achieved lasing in October 2010 and has since been characterised in terms of its output *. In this work we make a characterisation of electron bunch properties along a complete 100us macropulse to characterise the lasing-induced energy change and its effect on energy recovery. Measurements of bunch energy and timing are correlated with the FEL radiation output and discussed.

  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.

  ALICE is a low-energy Energy Recovery Linac operated at Daresbury Laboratory in Cheshire, UK. The ALICE injector is based around a 350 kV DC photo-cathode electron gun. With an operating voltage of 325 keV, electron dynamics in the ALICE injector are space-charge dominated and highly non-linear, and this complicates simulations of the beam dynamics in this region. With an intermediate energy of 6.5 MeV, and a final ring energy of 27.5 MeV, the space-charge effects in the rest of the machine can also not be ignored. In this paper we summarise some of the work that has been performed to understand and optimise the simulations of the ALICE ERL, in several different operating modes, and using several different modelling codes.
