Abstract To equip SACLA with wide ability to provide a laser beams in EUV and soft X-ray regions to experimental users, we have constructed a new free electron laser facility for SACLA beamline-1. Injector components, such as a thermionic electron gun, two buncher cavities, a S-band standing wave accelerator, S-band travelling wave accelerator and their RF sources, were relocated from the SCSS test accelerator, which was a prototype machine of SACLA. At the downstream of a bunch compressor chicane, three C-band 40 MV/m acceleration units were newly installed to effectively boost a beam energy up to 470 MeV. Two in-vacuum undulators were remodeled by changing the period of magnet array from 15 mm to 18 mm to increase SASE intensity by a larger K-value of 2.1. Beam commissioning was started in autumn 2015. So far SASE radiation at a 33 nm wavelength driven by a 470 MeV electron beam was observed. We will install the third undulator in this winter to obtain SASE saturation and additional C-band accelerator units in the next summer to raise the maximum beam energy to 750 MeV. In this presentation, the overview of the facility and the commissioning status will be reported.
