Xray free electron laser (XFEL) facilities in their current form are large, costly to maintain, and inaccessible due to their minimal supply and high demand. It is then advantageous to consider miniaturizing XFELs through a variety of means. We hope to increase beam brightness from the photoinjector via high gradient operation (>120 MV/m) and cryogenic temperature operation at the cathode (<77K). To this end we have designed and fabricated our new CrYogenic Brightness-Optimized Radiofrequency Gun (CYBGORG). The photogun is 0.5 cell so much less complicated than our eventual 1.6 cell photoinjector. It will serve as a prototype and test bed for cathode studies in a new cryogenic and very high gradient regime. We present here the fabricated structure, progress towards commissioning, and beamline simulations.

Plasma wakefield acceleration using the electron linear accelerator test facility, SAMURAI, can be used to study the Jovian electron spectrum due to the high energy spread of the beam after the plasma interaction. The SAMURAI RF facility which is currently being constructed and commissioned at UCLA, is is capable of producing beams with 10 MeV energy, 2 nC charge, and 200 fsec bunch lengths with a 4 um emittance. Particle-in-cell (PIC) simulations are used to study the beam spectrum that would be generated from plasma interaction. Experimental methods and diagnostics are discussed in this paper.
