  The SLAC High Energy upgrade of LCLS-II (LCLS-II-HE) will double the beam energy to 8 GeV, increasing the XFEL photon energy reach to about 13 keV. The energy reach can be extended to 20 keV if the beam emittance can be halved, which requires a higher gradient electron gun with a lower intrinsic emittance photocathode. To this end, the Low Emittance Injector (LEI) will be built that will run parallel to the existing LCLS-II Injector. The LEI design will be based on a state-of-the-art SRF gun with a 30 MV/m cathode gradient. The main goal is to produce transverse beam emittances of 0.1 mm-mrad for 100 pC bunch charges. This paper describes the beam dynamics studies on the design of the LEI including the simulations and multi-objective genetic algorithm (MOGA) optimizations. Performance with different injector layouts, cathode gradients, bunch charges and cathode mean transverse energies (MTEs) will be presented.

The LCLS-II-HE project at SLAC is intended to increase the photon energy reach of the LCLS-II FEL to at least 20 keV. In addition to upgrading the undulator system, and increasing the electron beam energy to 8 GeV, the project will also construct a low-emittance injector (LEI) in a new tunnel. To achieve the LEI emittance goals, a low-MTE photocathode will be required, as will on-cathode electric fields up to 50% higher than those achievable in the current LCLS-II photoinjector. The beam source for the LEI will be based around a superconducting quarterwave cavity resonant at 185.7 MHz. A prototype gun is currently being designed and fabricated at the Facility for Rare Isotope Beams (FRIB) at Michigan State University. This paper presents the performance goals for the new gun design, an overview of the prototype development effort, current status, and future plans including fabrication of a "production" gun for the LEI.
