  In the framework of a future upgrade of the SOLEIL 354 m long and 2.75 GeV storage ring, a series of lattice studies has been launched to aim at reducing by an order of magnitude the current 4 nm.rad horizontal emittance. In this exercise, the main constraint imposed is to leave all the existing 24 straight sections for insertion devices untouched. In the previous study (presented at IPAC 2012), the possibility of using superbends and exploiting their longitudinal dipole field variation was pursued in lowering the emittance, finding solutions with a horizontal emittance in the sub nanometer range. In the present study, the use of MBA (Multi-Bend-Achromat) lattice is explored, which is widely recognized today as the optimal lattice in reaching an ultra-low emittance. The study aims to clarify the adaptability of the MBA and the range of attainable emittance for the SOLEIL ring, in view particularly of the short straight sections existing in half of the original DBA cells in between the dipoles. The possibility of combining the previously obtained superbend solutions with the MBA lattice is also examined.

  The ALBA lattice is a DBA-like structure where most of vertical focusing is provided by gradient dipoles. In the first year of machine operation, the model parameters describing the focusing strength of the 32 dipoles have been calibrated by fitting the measured closed orbit response matrix. The mean k-value obtained from this analysis differs by -0.3% with respect to the value taken from the magnetic measurements previous to the magnet installation, while the k variation within the 32 dipoles is of the same order of magnitude. The optics results (tunes, beta beating, dispersion) obtained with the beam based model are compared with the predicted ones from the magnetic measurement model.
