    Abstract:
    The Duke Free-Elec­tron Laser Lab­o­ra­to­ry (DFELL) op­er­ates sev­er­al ac­cel­er­a­tors as a driv­er for stor­age ring based Free-Elec­tron Lasers (FELs) and Comp­ton gam­ma-ray source, the High In­ten­si­ty Gam­ma-ray Source (HIGS). The HIGS is the most pow­er­ful Comp­ton gam­ma-ray source in the world below 100 MeV. Since com­plet­ing a major up­grade of the HIGS in 2007, the Duke stor­age ring FEL and HIGS gamma source have been op­er­at­ed ex­ten­sive­ly for user re­search pro­grams. In 2008, the DFELL was merged with the Tri­an­gle Uni­ver­si­ties Nu­cle­ar Lab­o­ra­to­ry (TUNL) to be­come a major ac­cel­er­a­tor fa­cil­i­ty of the TUNL. The ac­cel­er­a­tor physics pro­gram at the DFELL cov­ers a wide range of ac­tiv­i­ties, from non­lin­ear dy­nam­ics re­search, to the study of beam in­sta­bil­i­ty with ad­vanced feed­back sys­tems, to light source re­search and de­vel­op­ment, in par­tic­u­lar, the FEL re­search and Comp­ton light source de­vel­op­ment. In this paper, we will re­port our re­cent progress in ac­cel­er­a­tor physics re­search and light source de­vel­op­ment to meet new chal­lenges of today's and fu­ture ac­cel­er­a­tors.
