  The new type of the Stanford Linear Accelerator Energy Doubler (SLED) system for the PAL (Pohang Accelerator Laboratory) XFEL (X-ray Free Electron Laser) is developed to be operated with an RF input power of 80 MW and a pulse width of 4 μs. To prevent the RF breakdown such a high power operation, a biplanar 3-dB power divider and dual side-wall coupling irises structure are used in the new SELD system. It is shown that the field gradient and surface current is reduced from that of the original SLED system using the the finite-difference time-domain (FDTD) simulation. The high power test result of the new SLED system in the PAL XFEL test facility will be presented.

  We need 172 accelerating structures for the PAL-XFEL 10 GeV main linac. It takes long time for these structures to be delivered. So we are trying to find suppliers of the accelerating structures. First, we made an order of 40 accelerating structures to Mitsubishi Heavy Industry (MHI), which have Quasi-type couplers to reduce the quadruple and sextuple components of the electric field in the coupling cavity. And Research Instruments (RI) has fabricated a 3m long race type accelerating structure for PAL-XFEL. Also, Vitzrotech which is a domestic company and IHEP in China are under developing accelerating structures for PAL-XFEL respectively. We will describe the current status of accelerating structures and high power test results of the newly developed structures in this paper.
