    Abstract

    The Compact Energy Recovery Linac (cERL) at KEK is a test accelerator to develop critical components of future light sources. After beam studies on beam dynamics and survey for beam losses, we have achieved circulating 1-mA CW beam with total beam losses better than 0.1%. In parallel to the increase in beam current, various research and developments have been carried out: beam tuning for low emittance, short pulse generation below 1 ps, improvement of DC gun voltage, etc. A laser Compton scattering (LCS) system for high-flux X-rays has been successfully commissioned and has benefitted from the increase in the beam current.
