The APS Upgrade Project will provide new state-of-the-art beamlines and enhanced capabilities to all APS users. To do this, the APS Upgrade Project will construct a dozen new or upgraded beamlines with orders-of-magnitude improvement in spatial, time, and energy resolutions in areas such as high-energy diffraction, in situ studies of materials synthesis, wide-field imaging, ultrafast diffraction, and spectroscopy. For all APS users, the scope of the Project also includes construction of insertion devices optimized to deliver the highest brightness, long straight sections, superconducting RF cavities to produce picosecond X-ray pulses, higher electron current, and improved beam stability.

Since the last User Meeting in 2012, the Project received approval by DOE and has started the construction of the Resonant Inelastic X-Ray Scattering beamline, and has also successfully passed the Preliminary Design Review. In addition, significant progress has been made in many areas, such as the installation and commissioning of the prototype superconducting undulator, testing of the new beam position monitor, and the first integrated test of the prototype superconducting RF deflection cavity in the laboratory. The workshop will be an opportunity to discuss the current status of the APS Upgrade Project, recent design and technical advances, and future plans.
