Coherent THz pulses caused by a laser-induced density modulation of the electron bunches are routinely produced and observed at DELTA, a 1.5 GeV synchrotron light source operated by the TU Dortmund University. New measurements performed with a fast hot-electron bolometer allow insight into the turn-by-turn evolution of these pulses. Furthermore, first results from a Fourier transform infrared spectrometer, which is currently under commissioning, are presented.

In the low-alpha operation mode of the ANKA synchrotron light source, coherent synchrotron radiation (CSR) is emitted from short electron bunches. Depending on the bunch current, the radiation shows bursts of high intensity. These bursts of high intensity THz radiation display a time evolution which can be observed only on long time scales with respect to the revolution period. In addition, long range wake fields can introduce a correlation between the bunches within a bunch train and thus modify the observed behavior. A novel detection system consisting of an ultra-fast superconducting THz detector and data acquisition system was used to investigate correlations visible on the bursting pattern and to study the interactions of very short pulses in the ANKA storage ring.

  The synchrotron light source ANKA at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology provides a dedicated low-α-optics. In this mode bursting of Coherent Synchrotron Radiation (CSR) is observed for bunch charges above a threshold that depends on beam parameters. This threshold can be determined by several approaches, e.g. bunch lengthening or changes in the THz radiation spectra. This paper compares different methods and their implementation at the ANKA storage ring outlining their advantages, disadvantages and limitations, including reliability and possibility of real time analysis.

A setup for near-field electro-optical bunch length measurements has recently been installed into the UHV system of the ANKA storage ring. For electro-optical bunch length measurements during ANKA's low alpha operation, a laser pulse is used to probe the field induced birefringence in an electro-optical crystal (GaP in our case). The setup allows for both electro-optical sampling (EOS, multi-shot) and spectral decoding (EOSD, single- and multi-shot) measurements. This paper presents first results and discusses challenges of this method employed for the first time at a storage ring.

The technique of electro-optical measurements allows precise and single-shot measurements of the bunch length and shape. The installation of such a near-field setup changes the impedance of the storage ring and the corresponding effects have to be studied carefully. One possibility is to use numerical codes for simulating the wakefields induced by the setup. Such simulations has been done using the wakefield solver implemented in the CST Studio Suite. In this paper we present the simulation results together with first measurements.
