Title Lattice Design for the Fourth Generation Light Source at Daresbury Laboratory
Abstract The proposed Fourth Generation Light Source (4GLS) has three electron transport paths: an energy recovery loop containing the main linac, IDs and a VUV-FEL, a separate branch after the main linac for an XUV-FEL and a transport path for an IR-FEL. The first two present major challenges in lattice design. The energy recovery loop will be fed by a high average current gun, with bunches of charge of about 80 pC. High charge (1 nC) bunches from a high brightness gun will be accelerated prior to the main linac and split into the XUV-FEL branch using energy separation after the main linac. We present a lattice design and results from numerical modelling of the electron bunch transport. The requirements of the machine are short bunches, a small emittance for both branches and an overall topology which gives a reasonable dimension for the building. Different transport and compression schemes were assessed to meet these requirements whilst balancing the disruptive effects of longitudinal and transverse space charge, CSR, wakefields and BBU. Investigations into all of these instabilities are summarised together with other transport issues and the resulting requirements on all IDs.
