  Nanometre resolution cavity beam position monitors (BPMs) have been developed to measure the beam position and linked to a feedback system control the beam position stability within few nanometres in the vertical direction at the focus, or interaction point (IP), of Accelerator Test Facility 2 (ATF2). In addition, for feedback applications a lower-Q and hence faster decay time system is desirable. Two IPBPMs have been installed inside of IP chamber at the ATF2 focus area. To measure the resolution of IPBPMs two additional C-band cavity BPMs have been installed one upstream and one downstream of the IP. One cavity BPM has been installed at an upstream image point of IP. The performance of the BPMs is discussed and the correlation between IP and image point positions is presented along with a discussion of using these BPMs for position stabilisation at the IP.

  Generation of ultrashort x-ray pulses (femtoseconds to attoseconds) is attracting much attention within the x-ray FEL user community. At the Linac Coherent Light Source (LCLS), we have successfully delivered femtosecond x-ray pulses to the users with two operating modes – low-charge (20-40pC) scheme and emittance spoiling foil method. Diagnostics on the femtosecond beams is also a challenging topic and good progresses have been made at LCLS. In this paper we report the experimental studies on the two femtosecond operation schemes, the x-ray performance and also the diagnostic progress.

  X-ray free-electron lasers provide ultrashort x-ray pulses from several to a few hundred femtoseconds for multidisciplinary users. However, tremendous challenges remain in the measurement and control of these ultrashort pulses with femtosecond precision, for both the electron beam and the x-ray pulses. A new diagnostic scheme adding a transverse radio-frequency deflector at the end of the linac coherent light source (LCLS) undulator beamline has been proposed*. Two 1-m long deflecting structures have been installed at LCLS during the summer of 2012. Installation of the high power RF components including the klystron, waveguide, RF controls etc. is proceeding and commissioning is scheduled for March 2013. We report the latest progress of the commissioning of the deflector at LCLS.
