Title FEL considerations for CLARA: a UK test facility for future light sources
Abstract A new dedicated test accelerator called CLARA (Compact Linear Advanced Research Accelerator) is proposed to test concepts relevant to the development of next generation light sources. The ultimate aim of CLARA is to develop a normal conducting test accelerator able to generate longitudinally and transversely bright electron bunches, and to use these bunches in the experimental production of stable, synchronised, ultra short photon pulses of coherent light from a single pass FEL with techniques directly applicable to the future generation of light source facilities. The parameters of CLARA are now being developed with the aim of establishing a flexible test facility capable of demonstrating ultra short photon pulse generation from a number of alternative schemes that have yet to be experimentally proven.
