Studies of the electron beam dynamics for the 4GLS design are presented. 4GLS will provide three different electron bunch trains to a variety of user synchrotron sources. The 1 kHz XUV-FEL and 100 mA High Average Current branches share a common 540 MeV linac, whilst the 13 MHz IR-FEL must be well-synchronised to them. An overview of the injector designs, electron transport, and energy recovery is given, including ongoing studies of coherent synchrotron radiation, beam break-up and wakefields. This work is being pursued for the forthcoming Technical Design Report due in 2008.

  As part of the UK's R&D programme to develop an advanced energy recovery linac-based light source (4GLS); a 35 MeV technology demonstrator called the Energy Recovery Linac Prototype (ERLP) has been constructed. It is based on a combination of a DC photocathode electron gun, a superconducting injector linac and main linac operating in energy recovery mode, driving an IR-FEL. The priorities for this machine are to gain experience of operating a photoinjector gun and superconducting linacs; to produce and maintain high-brightness electron beams; achieving energy recovery from an FEL-disrupted beam and studying important synchronisation issues. The current status of this project is presented, including construction and commissioning progress, including plans for the future exploitation of this scientific and technical R&D facility.
