Title Status of the ALICE IR-FEL: from ERL Demonstrator to User Facility
Abstract The ALICE (Accelerators and Lasers In Combined Experiments) accelerator at STFC Daresbury Laboratory in the UK was conceived in 2003. It was constructed as a short-term Energy Recovery Linac (ERL) demonstrator to develop the underpinning technology and expertise required for a proposed 600MeV ERL-based FEL facility. In this paper we present an update on the performance and status of ALICE which now operates as a funded IR-FEL user facility. We discuss the technological challenges of evolving a short-term demonstrator into a stable, reliable user facility and present a summary of the current scientific programme.
