From Event: SPIE Optical Engineering + Applications, 2017
SACLA was inaugurated in March 2012 with two beamlines: BL3 for hard X-ray FEL and BL1 for wide range spontaneous emission. To enhance the research opportunities in soft X-ray region, the SCSS test accelerator, which was a prototype linac of SACLA and decommissioned in 2013, was upgraded, relocated to the SACLA undulator hall, and connected to BL1. The commissioning of this upgraded BL1 had been started from September in 2015, and user operation was started from June 2016. Currently, SASE-FEL pulses in the photon energy range of 20 to 150 eV are available and average pulse energy is about 70 μJ at 100 eV. We are developing beam diagnostic systems such as an arrival timing diagnostics between the SXFEL and the synchronized optical laser. We have further upgrade plans of the accelerator and the beamline. In this presentation, I will report the latest status and future upgrade plans of this beamline.
Conference Presentations are recordings of oral presentations given at SPIE conferences and published as part of the conference proceedings. They include the speaker's narration along with a video recording of the presentation slides and animations. Many conference presentations also include full-text papers.
