The accelerator at the Source Development Lab at BNL consists of a 1.6 cell RF photocathode electron gun followed by a 230 MeV SLAC-type linac that includes a magnetic chicane bunch compressor. The nominal specifications call for a 10 ps FWHM bunch of 2nC charge to be compressed in time by a factor of 25 at an energy of 85 MeV. The design of the compressor magnets and the beam dynamics from the gun through the magnetic chicane are described.
