Abstract

MIT and the Bates Linear Accelerator Center are exploring the construction of an X-ray free electron laser user facility. It will be based on a superconducting linac of approximately 4GeV energy, and produce XUV light in the 0.3-100nm wavelength range at kilohertz repetition rates. The facility will be a full user facility incorporating multiple beamlines. Conventional lasers that produce the electron beam, seed the FEL, and execute pump-probe experiments are carefully integrated. The current design of the facility is discussed.
