Title 10 Years of ALICE: From Concept to Operational User Facility
Abstract ALICE (Accelerators and Lasers in Combined Experiments) is a 26 MeV energy recovery linac driving a tuneable infra-red free-electron laser (FEL) at Daresbury Laboratory in the UK. Formerly known as ERLP (Energy Recovery Linac Prototype), the machine has developed over 10 years into an operational user facility. ALICE is currently in the middle of a three year funded programme utilising the FEL radiation to investigate new diagnostic techniques for various forms of cancer in humans. ALICE consists of a 350 keV DC photoinjector, two 1.3 GHz pulsed superconducting linac modules, energy recovery transport and bunch compressor, FEL oscillator cavity, variable gap undulator, radiation beamlines and user stations. We give an overview of the conception, development and current operational status of ALICE.
