The Linac Coherent Light Source at SLAC will be the brightest X-ray laser in the world when it comes on line. In order to achieve the brightness a 100fS length electron bunch is passed through an undulator. To creat the 100fS bunch, a 10pS electron bunch, created from a photo cathode in an RF gun, is run off crest on the RF to set up a position to energy correlation. The bunch is then compressed chicanes. The stability of the RF system is critical in setting up the position to energy correlation. Specifications derived from simulations require the RF system to be stable to below 100fS in several critical injector stations and the last kilometer of linac. The SLAC linac RF system is being upgraded to meet these requirements.
