  A new THz Coherent Undulator Radiation (THz-CUR) source has been developed to generate intense quasi-monochromatic THz radiation at the Institute of Advanced Energy, Kyoto University. The system consists of a photocathode RF gun, bunch compression chicane, quadrupole magnets, and short planar undulator. The total length of this system is around 5 meters. At present, this compact accelerator has successfully started giving the THz-CUR in the frequency range of 0.16 - 0.65 THz. To investigate the performance of the source, the relationship between the total radiation energy, peak power and power spectrum as a function of bunch charge at the different undulator gaps were measured. The results are reported in the paper.

We have designed a diamond irradiation setup capable of achieving multiple kW/mm2 power density. The setup was installed at the 7-ID-B beamline at the Advanced Photon Source (APS) for a successful irradiation experiment, testing the capability of diamond to endure x-ray free electron laser oscillator (XFELO) levels of irradiation (≥ 10 kW/mm2) without degradation of Bragg reflectivity.* Focused white-beam irradiation (50 μm x 20 μm spot size at 12.5 kW/mm2 power density) of a diamond single crystal was conducted in a vacuum environment of 1x10-8 Torr for varying durations of time at different spots on the diamond, and also included one irradiation spot during a spoiled vacuum environment of 4x10-6 Torr. Here we present the apparatus used to irradiate the diamond consisting of multiple subassemblies: the fixed masks, focusing optics, gold-coated UHV irradiation chamber, water-cooled diamond holder, chamber positioning stages (with sub-micron resolution) and detector.

  Beam halo measurements and collimations are of great importance at the European XFEL, especially for the operation at high repetition rates (27000 pulses/s). First beam halo measurements have been performed during the commissioning using the wire scanners installed before and after the ~200 m long post-linac collimation section. We present the measurement results and the comparison of beam halo distributions before and after the collimation section.

  A transverse laser-shaping optical setup using microlens arrays (MLAs), previously developed and employed at Argonne Wakefield Accelerator (AWA), allows the formation of both highly uniform and modulated (patterned) beams. In the latter case, transverse modulation is imposed in the sub-millimeter scale. In the present study, we report the simulations of backward coherent transition radiation (CTR) emitted from a transversely modulated beam. We compare the case of a uniform round beam against different transverse modulation wavelengths by generating CTR on a steel target and measuring the autocorrelation function of the resulting radiation with an interferometer. We particularly focus on the differences between round and patterned beam distributions and discuss possible future applications of this setup in THz radiation generation.

  Mode-selective phonon excitation (MSPE) is an attractive method for studying the lattice dynamics (e.g. electron-phonon interaction and phonon-phonon interaction). In addition, MSPE can control electronic, magnetic, and structural phases of materials. In 2013, we have directly demonstrated MSPE of a bulk material (6H-SiC) with MIR-FEL (KU-FEL) by anti-Stokes (AS) Raman-scattering spectroscopy. Recently, we have certified that the Sum Frequency Generation (SFG) also occurs with AS Raman scattering. For distinguishing between the AS Raman scattering and SFG, we need to know the nonlinear susceptibility and transmittance. The coefficients can be measured by the Second Harmonic Generation (SHG) spectroscopy. In this paper, the outline of the measurement system and the preliminary results with a 6H-SiC sample are reported.

We describe the upgrades to diagnostic capabilities on the Fermilab Accelerator Science and Technology (FAST) electron linear accelerator that will allow investigations of the effects of high-order modes (HOMs) in SCRF cavities on macropulse-average beam quality. We focus here on the dipole modes in the first pass-band generally observed in the 1.6-1.9 GHz regime in TESLA-type SCRF cavities due to uniform transverse beam offsets of the electron beam. Such cavities are the basis of the accelerator for the European XFEL and the proposed MaRIE XFEL facility. Initial HOM data indicate that the mode intensities oscillate for about 10 microseconds after the micropulse enters the cavity, resulting in centroid shifts throughout the train. This results in a blurring of the averaged beam image size. The upgrades will include optimizing the HOM detectors' bandpass filters and adding a 1.3-GHz notch filter, converting the BPM electronics to bunch-by-bunch processing, and using the C5680 streak camera in a framing mode for bunch-by-bunch spatial information at the <20-micron level. The preliminary HOM detector data, prototype BPM test data, and first framing camera OTR data will be presented.

  The development of sub-femtosecond x-ray capabilities at the Linac Coherent Light Source requires the implementation of time-domain diagnostics with attosecond (as) time resolution. Photoelectrons created by attosecond duration x-ray pulses in the presence of a strong-laser field are known to suffer an energy spread which depends on the relative phase of the strong-laser field at the time of ionization. This phenomenon can be exploited to measure the duration of these ultrashort x-ray pulses. We present an implementation which employs a circularly polarized infrared laser pulse and novel velocity map imaging design which maps the phase dependent momentum of the photoelectron onto a 2-D detector. In this paper, we present the novel co-linear VMI design, simulation of the photoelectron momentum distribution, and the reconstruction algorithm.
