Title The current status of the ALICE (Accelerators and Lasers in Combined Experiments) facility
Abstract ALICE (Accelerators and Lasers In Combined Experiments), a 35 MeV energy recovery linac based light source, is being commissioned and developed as an experimental R&D facility for a wide range of projects that could employ synchronized ultra-short (<1ps) electron bunches and light pulses. A suit of light sources includes an IR FEL, Compton backscattering (CBS) X-ray source, high power THz source and a multi-TW femtosecond laser. The full energy recovery and coherently enhanced, due to shortness of the electron bunches, THz radiation have been already demonstrated on ALICE. Completion of the first phase of the CBS X-ray source experiment and first lasing of the IR FEL are expected before the end of 2009. Status of ALICE experimental facility and latest results on FEL, THz, and CBS development are reported in this paper.
