FERMI@Elettra, located next to the third-generation synchrotron light source Elettra in Trieste, Italy, is a seeded FEL user-facility covering the wavelength range from 100 nm (12 eV) to 4 nm (310 eV) [1]. The facility uses normal conducting linac and the wavelength range is covered with two lines, FEL-1 and FEL-2. Three beamlines will transport the FEL photons to the experimental stations, using proper tailoring optics and beam diagnostics to meet the research requirements. Beneficial occupancy of the new undulator and experimental hall was given at the end of summer 2010 when all auxiliary systems were also made available. The installation of the machine is now almost completed; commissioning of the linac has started in parallel to the installation activities and the commissioning of FEL-1 is in a well-advanced state. The first seeded lasing from FEL-1 was observed in December 2010 and the first experiments are starting in 2011. This paper gives an overview of the facility, as well as the general status of installation and commissioning, and a perspective into future developments and user programs.

Abstract

FERMI@Elettra, located next to the third-generation synchrotron light source Elettra in Trieste, Italy, is a seeded FEL user-facility covering the wavelength range from 100 nm (12 eV) to 4 nm (310 eV) [1]. The facility uses normal conducting linac and the wavelength range is covered with two lines, FEL-1 and FEL-2. Three beamlines will transport the FEL photons to the experimental stations, using proper tailoring optics and beam diagnostics to meet the research requirements. Beneficial occupancy of the new undulator and experimental hall was given at the end of summer 2010 when all auxiliary systems were also made available. The installation of the machine is now almost completed; commissioning of the linac has started in parallel to the installation activities and the commissioning of FEL-1 is in a well-advanced state. The first seeded lasing from FEL-1 was observed in December 2010 and the first experiments are starting in 2011. This paper gives an overview of the facility, as well as the general status of installation and commissioning, and a perspective into future developments and user programs.
