  abstract     = {A new ultrafast electron diffraction (UED) instrument is being developed by UCLA-Colorado University collaboration for the STROBE NSF Center with the goal of using electron and EUV photon beams to reveal the structural dynamics of materials in non-equilibrium states at fundamental atomic and temporal scales. This paper describes the design of the electron beamline of this instrument. In order to minimize the initial emittance, a nanotip photocathode, 25 nm in radius, will be used. This requires a redesign of the cathode and anode components of the electron gun to allow for the tip to be properly aligned. Solenoidal lenses are used to focus the beam transversely to a sub-micron spot at the sample and a radiofrequency (RF) cavity, driven by a continuous wave S-band RF source, longitudinally compresses the beam to below 100 fs, required for atomic resolution.},
