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.

At DELTA, a 1.5-GeV electron storage ring operated by the TU Dortmund University, longitudinal and transverse bunch-by-bunch feedback systems are in use to detect and suppress multi-bunch instabilities. Besides that, the digital feedback systems are excellent diagnostics tools. As an example, by exciting a certain number of bunches within the bunch train, the coupling to the non-excited bunches can be investigated below and above the instability threshold. Other examples include studies of the injection process and monitoring bunch oscillations during sudden beam loss. First experimental results will be presented in this paper.

The new short-pulse facility at DELTA (a 1.5-GeV synchrotron light source) based on coherent harmonic generation (CHG) utilizes an electromagnetic undulator which can be configured as optical klystron (undulator – chicane – undulator). To optimize the CHG signal, the energy modulation of the electrons in the first undulator and the dispersion of the magnetic chicane (i.e. the R56 matrix element) have to be optimized. Since the R56 value of the present chicane is not sufficient, it is planned to rewire the magnetic coils to create a more efficient chicane. Simulations of the present chicane will be compared to measurements of the R56 matrix element and a new chicane configuration will be presented which increases the R56 value by a factor of ten.

The short-pulse facility at the 1.5-GeV synchrotron light source DELTA, operated by the TU Dortmund University, generates coherent VUV and THz radiation by Coherent Harmonic Generation (CHG). Here, a femtosecond laser pulse interacts with an electron bunch in an undulator causing a periodic energy modulation and subsequent micro-bunching, which gives rise to coherent radiation at harmonics of the seed wavelength. Rather than using Ti:Sapphire laser pulses at 795 nm directly, the second harmonic is employed for seeding since 2012. After significant modifications of the seed laser beamline and the dispersive chicane to improve the microbunching, the last commissioning steps include characterization of the CHG radiation and preparing the experimental setup at an existing VUV beamline for time-resolved photoemission spectroscopy. In this paper, the status of the project and recent experimental results are presented.
