    Tou­schek scat­ter­ing is the dom­i­nant loss mech­a­nism for the elec­tron beam in a low en­er­gy stor­age ring with a large bunch cur­rent. The Duke Free-Elec­tron Laser (FEL) stor­age ring typ­i­cal­ly op­er­ates in the one-bunch or two-bunch mode with a very high bunch cur­rent and a vary­ing elec­tron beam en­er­gy as low as 250 MeV. The study of the Tou­schek life­time is im­por­tant for im­prov­ing the per­for­mance of the Duke stor­age ring based light sources, in­clud­ing the stor­age ring FELs and a FEL driv­en Comp­ton gamma source, the High In­ten­si­ty Gam­ma-ray Source. This work re­ports our life­time mea­sure­ment re­sults for few-bunch op­er­a­tion of the Duke stor­age ring. The Tou­schek loss rate is re­duced when an elec­tron beam is po­lar­ized in the stor­age ring. The change of the Tou­schek life­time can be used as a method to mon­i­tor po­lar­iza­tion of the elec­tron beam. In this work, we will also re­port our pre­lim­i­nary re­sults of the elec­tron beam en­er­gy mea­sure­ments using the res­o­nant de­po­lar­iza­tion tech­nique.
