Title Self-seeding design for SwissFEL
Abstract The SwissFEL facility, planned at the Paul Scherrer Institute, is based on the SASE operation of a hard (1-7 Å) and soft (7-70 Å) X-ray FEL beamline. In addition, seeding is foreseen for the soft X-ray beamline (down to a wavelength of 10 Å), and it is currently also under consideration for the hard X-ray beamline. We have investigated two methods, Echo-Enabled Harmonic Generation (EEHG) and self-seeding for each of the two FEL beamlines. Presently we consider self-seeding the most robust and lowest risk strategy for both lines. The paper discusses our considerations and presents the design of self-seeding implementation for the soft and the hard X-ray beamlines including the layout and simulation results.
