The Next Generation Light Source at LBNL will deliver MHz repetition rate electron beams to an array of free electron lasers. Because of the high beam power approaching one MW in such a facility, effective beam collimation is extremely important to minimize radiation damage, prevent quenches of superconducting cavities, limit dose rates outside of the accelerator tunnel and prevent equipment damage. This paper describes the conceptual design of a collimation system, including detailed simulations to verify its effectiveness.
