1 Enhancements to the Linac Coherent Light Source
2 LCLS Strategic Plan Near term - 2 years “LCLS-I” Increase user capacity flexible beam delivery through optics, linac energy and pulse length changes fixed gap afterburner at second harmonic 16 keV Intermediate term – 5 years “LCLS-II” Same injector, last 1/3 of linac, same conventional facilities Implement full capacity: simultaneous use of 6 hutches Increase spectral capability: present 800eV - 8keV, future 500eV - 24keV Implement polarization control Implement seeding Long term – 10 years “LCLS-III” Expansion: additional injectors, linac sections, undulators, conventional facilities higher rep. rate, linac energy, pulse properties, number of stations

Phase-3 (Ultra-Hard X-ray Line) Existing 1.5-Å to 15-Å & 2 nd harm. op’s fully preserved 0.5 Å (up to 15 Å) by replacing all existing undulators with variable gap Full polarization control at any HXR wavelength Self-seeding HXR option with two e bunches (~10 ns spacing) Summary of three Phases
6 Undulator Parameters Periods, gaps and peak fields for new LCLS undulators are well within state-of-the-art for hybrid permanent magnet devices Soft XR Hard XR ~ 2 x 10 11 1 ~ 4 x 10 11 2
8 Limitations of SLAC Linac The SLAC Linac has been in nearly continuous use since May 1966. The major components of the Linac are: –Klystrons (240) Now 60,000 hr lifetime, replaced as needed, SLAC rebuilds klystrons (50%) and constructs new ones (50%). –Pulsed modulators (240) Major upgrades with SLC in 1980s, new upgrades underway for LCLS: power feeds, modulator controls, safety systems. –RF controls Major upgrades with SLC in 1980s, new upgrades underway for LCLS: phase, amplitude, and stability controls and electronics. –“Three meter” RF copper accelerating structures (960) No new ones since 1966, none have failed in every day use. Expected minimum lifetime from now of >20 years without erosion mitigation. Metallographic tests done on one unit in service for 31 years. Showed only water cooling line erosion. Vacuum and RF characteristics are fine. Mitigation studies started.
9 Up to 6 more undulator branch lines possible at ±1, ±2, and/or ±4 deg. Existing 3-km SLAC linac can supply 3 different simultaneous 14-GeV, 120-Hz beams or 28-GeV & 14-GeV beams (shared with PEPX). Can also operate in multi-bunch (~10, 10ns apart) mode to feed FEL farm. Injector Test Facility will be used to develop source technology, do critical beam physics, and also becomes the electron source for LCLS upgrades.
