Title Beam characterisation and machine developments at VELA
Abstract An overview is presented of developments on VELA (Versatile Electron Linear Accelerator), an RF photo-injector with two user stations at Daresbury Laboratory. Numerous commissioning, machine development, beam characterisation and user experiments have been completed in the past year. A new beamline and a dedicated multiuser station have been commissioned and the first experiments performed. A number of measures have been taken to improve the stability of machine by mitigating a phase drift, laser beam transport drift and a coherent ~1 Hz beam oscillation. The 6D phase space of the electron beam has been characterised through quad scans, transverse tomography and with a transverse deflecting cavity.
