Abstract
An installation for testing techniques related to seeding

and harmonic generation has been completed at MAXlab.

The aim is to study the processes around seeded

harmonic generation at 130/88/54 nm, the 2/3/5 harmonic

of a Ti:Sapphire laser. During the spring 2008 the

commissioning work has begun and this paper will report

on the progress.

The test FEL is built around the existing linac injector at

MAX-lab. This source can provide 4-500 MeV electrons

from an RF-gun. A combined laser system both driving

the photo cathode in the gun and, synchronised via an

optical fibre, the seed laser pulse has been put into

operation. An optical... (More)
An installation for testing techniques related to seeding

The test FEL is built around the existing linac injector at

from an RF-gun. A combined laser system both driving

the photo cathode in the gun and, synchronised via an

optical fibre, the seed laser pulse has been put into

operation. An optical klystron, consisting of two 30

period undulators and a 4-magnet chicane, is in operation.

Beam loss monitors along the optical klystron are in use

and a THz system for additional synchronisation studies

installed.

Results from electron beam optics and operation

generating spontaneous radiation is already available and

synchronisation results immediate. The work is in

progress and new results are added continuously to the

portfolio. (Less)
