Abstract: The John Adams Institute for Accelerator Science (JAI) has proposed the realisation of the Accelerator Science Laboratory (ASL) at the University of Oxford as a facility for the development of advanced compact light sources enabling accelerator science research and applications. The installation of a compact light source in the ASL is planned with two options for the accelerating technologies. Firstly, a conventional RF based accelerator is considered to be a driver for a short pulse THz coherent synchrotron radiation (CSR). The other option focusses on the radiation produced by a Laser Plasma Accelerator (LPA) advanced accelerator technique that will provide the possibility to shorten the length of the beamline. This paper presents results of the studies on beam dynamics for both options of compact light sources in the ASL.
