We develop and build undulators, specifically designed to be driven by plasma generated electron beams. The new BEAST II undulator is the successor of the world’s first plasma-driven undulator in the soft x-ray regime. With a period of only 5 mm, we aim at reaching the hard x-ray regime within the LUX experiment. In addition, we work on cryogenic undulators for a plasma driven free-electron laser.
