Abstract

We describe a staged concept for a linac-based freeelectron
laser providing coherent tuneable VUV and soft
X-ray output with pulse lengths down to 10 fs or less. Use
of 1.3 GHz cryomodules operated with CW RF will allow
flexible pulse patterns at potentially very high repetition
rates up to 1 MHz. We consider the options for FELs that
may be included in a facility of this type.
