  SOLEIL delivers photons to 26 beamlines and 3 new ones are under construction together with the femtoslicing project. Up to 5 filling patterns are available for the users including a low alpha mode; all of them are in Top-up injection. The beam current for the users has been increased to 430 mA in the multibunch mode. The Storage Ring (SR) is running with a new optics incorporating an additional quadrupole triplet in one long straight section. The beam position stability remains excellent. Vertical positions from the dipole X-BPMs have been included in the orbit feedbacks loop with very encouraging results. A feedback loop maintaining the emittance coupling close to 1% for any Insertion Devices (IDs) configuration has been implemented. Up to 25 very diverse IDs are now installed on the SR, and several others are under design or construction. In house developments are being carried out in several domains such as construction of SR dipole power supply spare and of 70 kW-500 MHz solid state amplifiers, design of a pulsed multipole magnet for injection, and a Robinson wiggler, as well as a feasibility study of a local reduction of the emittance in one of the long straight sections.

  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.

  This paper reports recent work for improving SOLEIL electron beam stability. X-BPMs from four bending magnet beamline frontends have been inserted in the global orbit feedback loops during user operation. The corresponding source point stabilities have improved and results are reported. Some of the new beamlines request more stringent stability than the existing ones. Their requirements are not only tighter for beam orbit but also for beam size and divergence stability. For these reasons, SOLEIL has decided to define beam quality criteria for each sensitive beamline. Then it can predict ahead of commissioning how well the beamline will likely perform. A feedback on the vertical emittance, measured by a pinhole camera, has been introduced in order to reduce beam size and divergence variations due to magnetic configuration changes of a few insertion devices.
