  Transverse Deflecting RF-Structures (TDS) are successfully used for longitudinal diagnostic purposes at many Free-Electron Lasers (FEL) (LCLS, FLASH, EU-XFEL, FERMI). Moreover, by installing a TDS downstream of the FEL undulators and placing the measurement screen in a dispersive section, the temporal photon pulse structure can be estimated, as was demonstrated at LCLS and sFLASH. Here we describe the installation of a variable polarization X-band structure (PolariX TDS [1]) downstream of the FLASH2 undulators. The installation of such a TDS enables longitudinal phase space measurements and photon pulse reconstructions, as well as slice emittance measurements in both planes using the same cavity due to the unique variable polarization of the PolariX TDS.

  A collaboration between DESY, PSI and CERN has been established to develop and build an advanced modular X- band transverse deflection structure (TDS) system with the new feature of providing variable polarization of the deflecting force. The prototype of the novel X-band TDS, the Polarizable X-band (PolariX) TDS, was fabricated at PSI following the high-precision tuning-free production process developed for the C-band Linac of the SwissFEL project. Bead-pull RF measurements were also performed at PSI to verify, in particular, that the polarization of the dipole fields does not have any rotation along the structure. The high-power test was performed at CERN and now the TDS is at DESY and has been installed in FLASHForward, where the first streaking experience with beam will be accomplished. We summarize in this paper the status of the project, the results of the bead-pull measurements and the high power test.
