  Superconductive insertion devices (IDs) have higher fields for a given gap and period length compared with the state-of-the-art technology of permanent magnet IDs. One of the still open issues for the development of superconductive insertion devices is the understanding of the heat intake from the electron beam. With the aim of measuring the beam heat load to a cold bore and the hope to gain a deeper understanding in the underlying mechanisms, a cold vacuum chamber for diagnostics was built. It is equipped with the following instrumentation: retarding field analyzers to measure the electron flux, temperature sensors to measure the beam heat load, pressure gauges, and mass spectrometers to measure the gas content. The flexibility of the engineering design will allow the installation of the cryostat in different synchrotron light sources. The installation in the storage ring of the Diamond Light Source is foreseen in November 2011. Here we report about the technical design of this device, the factory acceptance test and the planned measurements with electron beam.

The ALICE accelerator, the first energy recovery machine in Europe, has recently demonstrated lasing of an infra-red free electron laser (IR-FEL). The current status of the machine and recent developments are described. These include: lasing of the IR-FEL, a programme of powerful coherent terahertz radiation research, electro-optic diagnostic techniques, development of high precision timing and distribution system, implementation of digital low level RF control. ALICE also serves as an injector for the EMMA non-scaling FFAG machine.

  Superconducting undulators promise higher peak fields on axis than any other technology but they are still not a mainstream solution for 3rd or 4th generation light sources. A team within the UK is developing the design of a short period, narrow aperture, superconducting undulator that is planned to be installed and tested in the Diamond Light Source (DLS) in 2014. This paper will describe the main parameters of the undulator and the key design choices that have been made. Recent progress is then described in the areas of magnet modelling, mechanical design, cryogenic design, and prototyping. Finally, the next steps are described.
