LCLS II Activities at Fermilab

Linear Coherent Light Source II (LCLS II) FNAL's scope of work for LCLS II The LCLS II project is a collaborative effort between several institutions LCLS II offers the opportunity to bring together on one project the leading U.S. SRF institutions and takes advantage of the existing DOE investment in SRF infrastructure at both Fermilab and JLab. It will be a shining example of cooperation and collaboration between our two labs (Fermilab and Jefferson Lab) as the goal is to utilize expertise at both labs and to build identical cryomodules at each facility. Cryomodules will be tested at each lab and shipped to SLAC for installation in the tunnel.
At Fermilab, the project design work is ongoing with production of the first cryomodule scheduled for early FY16. All FNAL assembled cryomodules will be complete by the end of 2018. The LCLS II project will employ approximately half the Lab's trained SRF workforce.

The major benefit of LCLS II for Fermilab is that it strengthens our workforce and establishes a production mentality which assures that we are ready to build our next machine (PIP II).
