  We present a new method, inspired by chaos control theory, to master the micro-bunching instability in storage rings *. This instability appears when the bunch current exceeds a threshold value, and is characterized by spontaneous (and usually irregular) apparition of micro-structures in the bunch. We show that a regular state (with regular apparition of micro-structures) can pre-exist in the system, but with unstable properties; and we demonstrate the possibility of stabilizing this state thanks to a low power feedback loop. As a consequence of this method, a modification of less than 0.3% in the system parameters permits to decrease by more than 40 dB the THz fluctuations at the synchrotron SOLEIL (while keeping the coherent emission).

  The recent spectacular development of laser plasma ac- celerators that now can deliver GeV electron beams in an extremelyshortdistancemakesthemverypromising. Ap- plications for light sources based on undulator radiation and free electron laser appear as an intermediate step to move from an acceleration concept to an accelerator qual- ification. However, the presently achieved divergence and energy spread require some electron beam manipulations. The COXINEL test line was designed for enabling Free Elec- tron Laser operation with baseline reference parameters. It comprises variable permanent magnet quadrupoles for di- vergence handling, a magnetic chicane for electron energy sorting, a second set of quadrupole for chromatic focusing and an undulator for synchrotron radiation emission and/or free electron laser gain medium. The transport along the line is controlled [1]. The synchrotron radiation emitted by the undulator radiation is studied under different conditions of detection (CCD camera, spectrometer), electron beam manipulation and undulator parameters. These observations pave the way towards Laser Plasma Acceleration based Free Electron Laser.
