Beamlines capable of merging beams with different energies are critical to many applications related to advanced accelerator concepts and energy-recovery linacs (ERLs). In an ERL, a low-energy "fresh" bright bunch is generally injected into a superconducting linac for acceleration using the fields established by a decelerated "spent" beam traveling on the same axis. A straight-merger system composed of a selecting cavity with a superimposed dipole magnet was proposed and recently test at AWA. This paper reports on the experimental results obtained so far along with detailed beam dynamics investigations of the merger concept and its ability to conserve the beam brightness associated with the fresh bunch.

Particle accelerators are among the largest, most complex devices. To meet the challenges of increasing energy, intensity, accuracy, compactness, complexity and efficiency, increasingly sophisticated computational tools are required for their design and optimization. It is key that contemporary software take advantage of the latest advances in computer hardware and scientific software engineering practices, delivering speed, reproducibility and feature composability for the aforementioned challenges. A new open source software stack is being developed at the heart of the Beam pLasma Accelerator Simulation Toolkit (BLAST) by LBNL and collaborators, providing new particle-in-cell modeling codes capable of exploiting the power of GPUs on Exascale supercomputers. Combined with advanced numerical techniques, such as mesh-refinement, and intrinsic support for machine learning, these codes are primed to provide ultrafast to ultraprecise modeling for future accelerator design and operations.

A novel diagnostic has been developed that uses off-axis undulator radiation to characterize the longitudinal bunch profile of an electron beam. The diagnostic uses a small, ~0.1-m long undulator with mirrors that focus the undulator radiation onto an array of pyrometers. The mirrors both focus the radiation onto the pyrometer and remove the chirping effect that comes from the finite length of the undulator. Numerical and analytical models have been developed to calculate the radiation for a given bunch length, and a phase retrieval algorithm has been developed to extract the bunch profile from measured data. The diagnostic has been installed at the BELLA laser-plasma wakefield accelerator, and will be used to characterize the bunch length there. The concept and relevant results will be presented.
