  The PAL-XFEL is a 0.1-nm hard X-ray FEL construction project which started from 2011 with a total budget of 400 M$. The PAL-XFEL is designed to have three hard X-ray undulator lines at the end of 10-GeV linac and a dog-leg branch line at 3 GeV point for two soft X-ray undulator lines. The three-bunch compressor lattice (3-BC) is chosen to have large flexibility of operation, making it possible to operate soft X-ray FEL undulator line simultaneously and independently from hard X-ray FEL line. Self seeding to achieve the FEL radiation bandwidth of below 5x10-5 is baseline for the hard X-ray FEL line. Polarization control will be available by using the PU + EPU layout for the soft X-ray FEL line. The overview of the project with current status is presented.

  The PAL has been developing the low level radio frequency (LLRF) system. The required field stabilities of the LLRF system are within ±0.75% in amplitude and 0.35° in phase in a cavity. All the hardware including RF front–end, FPGA with peripherals such as ADC, DAC, Oscillator and digital interface were assembled. The sub-modules for the RF signal processing were written by VHDL and integrated to test at the local facility. The macroblaze software processor was implemented to make the system simple in interfacing to peripherals and to secure flexibility later. This paper described the microblaze processor which was ported into the VERTEX6 FPGA. And also this paper showed the test results of the each module and integrated into the full system.

  Pohang Accelerator Laboratory (PAL) is developing 10 GeV, 0.1 nm SASE based FEL for high power, short pulse X-ray coherent photon sources named PAL-XFEL. At the first stage PAL-XFEL needs two undulator lines for photon source. PAL is developing undulator magnetic structure based on EU-XFEL design. The hard X-ray undulator features 7.2 mm min magnetic gap, and 5.0 m magnetic length with maximum effective magnetic field larger than 0.908 T to achieve 0.1nm radiation at 10 GeV electron energy. A prototype for PAL-XFEL Xray undulator line is completed and the measurement, correction results are summarized.

  Pohang Accelerator Laboratory(PAL) is developing a SASE X-ray Free Electron Laser based on 10 GeV linear accelerator. Prototype phase shifters are being developed to be used for the X-ray and Soft X-ray undulator line. The phase shifters will be used to adjust the phase of the electron beam with respect to that of the radiation field. Two prototype phase shifters are being developed. One is based on the EU-XFEL phase shifter using zero-potential iron yoke, and the other one is similar to FERMI phase shifter where only permanent magnets are used. Driving system consists of 5 phase stepping motor, left/right handed ball screw and absolute linear encoder. In this paper, we describe the design, fabrication and test results of the two phase shifter prototypes.
