Fermilab is currently constructing a superconducting electron linac that will eventually serve as the backbone of a user-driven facility for accelerator science. This contribution describes the accelerator and summarizes the enabled research thrusts. A detailed description of the facility can be found at [\url{this http URL}].

Assembly and Installation of the UV Laser Delivery and Diagnostic Platform and the Photocathode Imaging System for the ASTA Front-end

The Advanced Superconducting Test Accelerator (ASTA) is in the early stage of commissioning. The front-end consists of a 1.5 cell normal conducting RF Gun resonating at 1.3 GHz with a gradient of up

Dual-grating dielectric accelerators driven by a pulse-front-tilted laser.

TLDR
Through two-dimensional particle-in-cell simulations, it is shown that such a PFT laser effectively increases the energy gain compared to that of a normally incident laser with a waist radius of 50 μm for a 100-period dual-grating structure.

A MODEL RING WITH EXACTLY SOLVABLE NONLINEAR MOTION

Recently, a concept of nonlinear accelerator lattices with two analytic invariants has been proposed [1]. Based on further studies [2], the Integrable Optics Test Accelerator (IOTA) was designed and
