"ALS-U, the Advanced Light Source Upgrade"
Abstract: The Advanced Light Source (ALS) at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL) will be upgraded with a Multi Bend Achromat (MBA) lattice, where each cell contains 9 bending magnets combined with reversed bending from offset quadrupole magnets. The beam energy will be increased to 2.0 GeV from today's 1.9 GeV and an accumulator ring will be used for allowing swap out injections. The ALS-U storage ring will replace the existing ALS ring and produce synchrotron radiation for a large number of existing ALS beamlines with a minimum of alterations of the beamline optical systems, which put stringent boundaries for the design of the ALS-U. The talk will give an overview of the ALS-U project and the key components of the ALS-U accelerator system.
