Paper Abstract

The French project of a fourth generation light source, ARC-EN-CIEL (Accelerator-Radiation for Enhanced Coherent Intense Extended Light), is a unique facility providing the user community with coherent femtosecond light pulses covering the UV, VUV and soft X ray spectral range. It is based on a CW 1 GeV superconducting linear accelerator delivering high charge, subpicosecond, low emittance electron bunches with high repetition rate (1 kHz), and adjustable polarisation until 1 keV. In addition to the High Gain Harmonic Generation (HGHG) experiment seeded with High Harmonics in Gases (HHG), allowing radiation down to 0.8 nm to be produced, two beam loops are foreseen to increase the beam current in using the energy recovery technique. They will accommodate fs synchrotron radiation sources in the IR, VUV and X ray ranges together with a FEL oscillator in the 10 nm range. Moreover, an important synergy is expected between accelerator and laser communities. Indeed, electron plasma acceleration will be tested and hard X ray femtosecond radiations will be produced by Thomson Scattering. The first phase of the project, ARC-EN-CIEL phase 1, is now under study. A general overview will be given.
