  The goal of the present CLIC test facility (CTF3) is to demonstrate the technical feasibility of specific key issues in the CLIC scheme. The extracted beam from the combiner ring (CR), of 35 A in magnitude and 140 ns duration, is sent to the new CLic EXperimental area (CLEX) facility. A Tail Clipper (TC) is required, in the CR to CLEX transfer line, to allow the duration of the extracted beam pulse to be adjusted. It is proposed to use a stripline kicker for the tail clipper, with each of the deflector plates driven to equal but opposite potential. The tail clipper kick must have a fast rise-time, of not more than 5 ns, in order to minimize uncontrolled beam loss and operate at a rate of up to 50 Hz. Several different options are being investigated to meet the demanding specifications for the modulator of the tail clipper. This paper discusses options considered for the fast, high voltage, semiconductor switches and shows results of initial tests on the switches.

  In KEK, we have two synchrotron light sources which were constructed in the early 1980s. One is the Photon Factory storage ring (PF-ring) and the other is the Photon Factory advanced ring (PF-AR). The PF-ring is usually operated at 2.5 GeV and sometimes ramped up to 3.0 GeV to provide photons with the energy from VUV to hard X-ray region. The PF-AR is mostly operated in a single-bunch mode of 6.5 GeV to provide pulsed hard X-rays. Operational performances of them have been upgraded through several reinforcements. After the reconstruction of the PF-ring straight sections from March to September 2005, two short-gap undulators were newly installed. They allow us to produce higher brilliant hard X-rays even at the energy of 2.5 GeV. At present we are going to prepare a top-up operation for the PF-ring. In the PF-AR, new tandem undulators have been operated in one straight section since September 2006 to generate much stronger pulsed hard X-rays for the sub-ns resolved X-ray diffraction experiments. In this conference, we report operational status of the PF-ring and the PF-AR including other machine developments.
