The accelerator at the Source Development Lab at BNL consists of a
1.6 cell RF photocathode electron gun followed by a 230 MeV SLAC-type
linac that includes a magnetic chicane bunch compressor. The nominal
specifications call for a 10 ps FWHM bunch of 2nC charge to be
compressed in time by a factor of 25 at an energy of 85 MeV. The design
of the compressor magnets and the beam dynamics from the gun through the
magnetic chicane are described
