Abstract: The design of free electron laser (FEL) driver needs careful beam transport design to pass very short bunches through the switchyard/spreader to switch the beam to different FEL lines. The spreader design which allows flexibility in operation has been adapted following the LBNL design [1]. In order to measure the slice properties of the bunches two beam diagnostics lines are proposed, a straight one for beam commissioning purposes and a branch of the spreader similar to the FEL lines to measure the adverse effects that may arise due to passing the short bunches through the kicker and septum magnets. As a part of machine protection, post linac collimation system collimates the halo particles in transverse and energy planes. The design of the collimation, beam spreader and beam diagnostics lines is discussed.
