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 Compact Linear Collider (CLIC) will require ultra-low emittance electron and positron beams. The targeted emittance will be achieved by radiative damping in the CLIC damping rings. For an efficient damping high-field short-period superconducting damping wigglers will be employed. In the conceptual design phase of CLIC, the basic layout of these wigglers has been elaborated at CERN. In the course of the CLIC technical feasibility studies a full-scale damping wiggler prototype will be installed and tested in the ANKA storage ring. The device is currently under design and construction at the Budker Institute of Nuclear Physics, Russia. Above the magnetic requirements, the main design challenges for the prototype are scalability –- particularly of the cooling concept –-, modularity and the capability of sustaining a high radiative heat load. The experiments at ANKA aim at a validation of the technical concepts applied to meet these requirements. Beyond that an extended experimental program on beam dynamics and alternative technical solutions is envisaged. This contribution gives an overview over the current status of the project and the further planning.

  FLUTE is a planned THz source at KIT operating at a beam energy of 40 to 50 MeV in a wide bunch charge range. It consists of a laser driven rf-gun, a linac and a magnetic bunch compressor. The high current density combined with relatively low energy of FLUTE leads to complex strong self-field and beam-radiation field interactions, which are the limiting factors for the bunch compression efficiency. The results of numerical studies are presented in this paper.

  FLUTE is a planned 40 to 50 MeV accelerator test facility consisting, in the first phase, of an electron gun with an output energy of about 7 MeV, a traveling wave linac and a magnet chicane bunch compressor. The machine will serve as a source of intense THz radiation using coherent synchrotron radiation (CSR), coherent transition radiation (CTR), and coherent edge radiation (CER) as generation mechanisms. It is planned to operate the machine in the charge regime from a few pC up to several nC in order to study bunch compression schemes as well as the THz radiation generation. In this contribution the effect of velocity bunching by using a dedicated buncher cavity at low energy and operating the linac off-crest is studied in order to deliver RMS bunch lengths in the femtosecond range at low charge.

  FLUTE is a linac-based accelerator test facility and a THz source currently being constructed at KIT with an electron beam energy of ~41 MeV. It is designed to cover a large charge range from a few pC to ~3 nC. FLUTE is optimized to provide ultra-short electron bunches with an RMS length down to a few fs. In this contribution, we focus on the layout of the machine from the RF gun & gun laser over the linac and the compressor to the THz beamline for the generation of coherent synchrotron, transition and edge radiation (CSR, CTR, CER).
