|MOP046||Progress of Delhi Light Source at IUAC, New Delhi||1|
Funding: This project is jointly supported by Inter University Accelerator Center and Board of Research in Nuclear Science.
The first phase of the pre-bunched FEL based on the Photoinjector RF electron gun, known as Delhi Light Source (DLS),* has been planned at Inter University Accelerator Centre (IUAC), New Delhi. The electron gun made from OFHC copper had already been fabricated and tested with low power RF at KEK, Japan. The beam optics calculation by using ASTRA, GPT codes has been performed and radiation produced from the pre-bunched electron bunches are being calculated.** The high power RF systems will be commissioned at IUAC by the beginning of 2018. The design of the laser system is being finalized and assembly/testing of the complete laser system will be started soon at KEK. The initial design of the photocathode deposition mechanism has also been completed and its procurement/development process will start shortly. The first version of the undulator magnet design has been completed and further improvements are underway.*** The initial arrangements of the DLS beam line have been worked out and various beam diagnostics components are being finalised. The production of the electron beam and THz radiation is expected by 2018 and 2019, respectively.
