Abstract: The Advanced Photon Source is the brightest light source in the western hemisphere, producing over 5000 hours of x-rays a year for 70 different experimental beamlines. The APS Upgrade (APS-U) project aims to maintain this world-class capability by further increasing the x-ray intensity and experimental capabilities available for its users. Short Pulse X-Ray (SPX) is a centerpiece of this upgrade, designed to generate pulses 1-2 ps long instead of the current 100 ps pulses. This will be done using superconducting radio frequency (SRF) deflecting cavities to manipulate the bunch dynamics, allowing flux to be traded for shorter pulse lengths. An overview of the APS and SPX will be presented along with the ongoing work of
designing and testing these cavities and associated technologies.
