From Event: SPIE Optical Engineering + Applications, 2016
SACLA was inaugurated in March 2012 with two beamlines: BL3 for hard X-ray FEL and BL1 for wide range spontaneous emission. Currently, all user experiments have been performed at BL3 and BL2 that was constructed as the second hard XFEL beamline. To enhance research opportunities with softer X-ray FEL, we decided to relocate the SCSS test accelerator, which was a prototype of SACLA and decommissioned in 2013, to the SACLA undulator hall, to connect to BL1, and to generate EUV and soft X-ray FEL independently of the SACLA linac.
In addition, we started commissioning of the upgraded BL1 in September 2015, and successfully observe SASE lasing at a photon energy of 36 eV in October. We are now constructing the end station, and will start commissioning in June 2016. We will install two C-band accelerator units that increase an electron beam energy up to 750 MeV with a photon energy up to 100 eV in the summer of 2016. In this presentation, I will report the latest status of the 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.
