A bunch duration monitor (BDM) was installed at the end of a synchrotron light monitor (SLM) port in the Advanced Photon Source (APS) booster synchrotron. The BDM is based on a fast Hamamatsu metal-semiconductor-metal detector with nominal rise and fall times of 30 ps. Bunch length data is especially important as the bunch charge will be raised from 3 nC, used in the existing machine, to as much as 18 nC for APS-Upgrade operation. During preliminary high-charge studies, the SLM image is observed to move over a period of minutes while the BDM signal intensity varies; the motion is likely due to thermal loading of the in-tunnel synchrotron light mirror. Work is underway to stabilize the position using a simple feedback system and motorized mirror mount, as well as a new synchrotron light mirror assembly with improved thermal load handling. The feedback system will maintain optical alignment on the BDM at an optimum position based on the SLM centroid location. The optical layout and feedback system will be presented along with preliminary bunch length data.

The Linac Extension Area at the Advanced Photon Source is a flexible beamline area for testing accelerator components and techniques. Driven by the Advanced Photon Source electron linac equipped with a photocathode RF electron gun, the Linac Extension Area houses a 12 m long beamline. The beamline is furnished with YAG screens, BPMs and a magnetic spectrometer to assist with characterization of beam emittance and energy spread. A 1.4 m long insertion in the middle of the beamline is provided for the installation of a device under test. The beamline is expected to be available soon for testing accelerator components and techniques using round and flat electron beams over an energy range 150-450 MeV. In the present work, we describe this beamline and summarise the main beam parameters.
