ANL has developed a high-resolution optical transition radiation (OTR) imaging monitor system for the LCLS injection linac at SLAC. The imaging station, OTR-S1, will be located at the S1 spectrometer with a beam energy of 135 MeV. The system will be used to acquire 2-D transverse beam distributions of the accelerated photocathode-gun-generated electron beam. We anticipate an average beam current of 0.2-1 nC and nominal beam spot size of σ-x 130 microns, σ-y 100 microns. The imaging system was designed for a field of view h/v: 10x7.5 mm. The spatial resolution of ~12 microns was verified over the central 5x4 mm region in the visible. A 12-bit digital camera acquires the image and a Mac-based digital frame capturing system was employed for the initial lab-based performance testing of the device. We are reporting on system development, image capture system, testing methodology, and test data analysis. Commissioning results will be reported as they become available.
