We plan to commission top-off injection at the Advanced Light Source in the near future. In order to guarantee radiation safety, we have been simulating the injection process to exclude the possibility of injected electrons traveling down the user's photon beam lines. As the final stage of our simulation study, we use photon beam line CAD drawings to define the beam line's aperture in the phase space which electrons must not enter. Then we virtually inject electrons from within these phase spaces backwards into the storage ring to prove that such electrons can never get back to the real injection point under any possible scenario. This paper summarizes such inverse tracking studies.

The Advanced Light Source is currently being upgraded for top-off operation. This major facility upgrade will provide an improvement in brightness from soft x-ray undulators of about one order of magnitude and keep the ALS competitive with the newest intermediate energy light sources. Major components of the upgrade include making the booster synchrotron capable of full energy operation, radiation safety studies, improvements to interlocks and collimation systems, diagnostics upgrades as well as emittance improvements in the main storage ring. The project status will be discussed as well as results of major parts of the commissioning.
