"Current Status of Pohang Light Source and Ongoing R & D Activities"

Jung Yun Huang
Pohang Accelerator Laboratory


Pohang Light Source (PLS) is a 2.5 GeV synchrotron radiation source having provided bright x-ray source to more than 3,000 scientific experiments so far.  For years, there have been major upgrades of the accelerator facility to solve the serious problems such as the local ground sinking, temperature fluctuations in the storage ring tunnel and electronics shed, and the distortion of the vacuum chamber depending on the stored beam current.  By upgrading the magnet power supplies to 20bit precision, the orbit stability finally falls into few micrometer stability goal.  With the present status of the PLS, the R&D activities such as photochathode gun development, 4th generation XFEL design study, and the efforts in the development of more stable accelerator components will be introduced.
