Intensive Monte Carlo simulations performed with state-of-the-art computation codes are applied to the
radiation shielding design of LCLS-II, which will be the extension of Linac Coherent Light Source
(LCLS) at SLAC and will use the middle one-third of SLAC two-mile Linac. This paper describes the
Monte Carlo studies of the first and last system where electron beams are involved, namely the LCLS-II
Injector and the X-ray Transport and Diagnostics System (XTOD).

LCLS-II will be the extension of Linac Coherent
Light Source (LCLS), which is the first hard X-ray free
electron laser facility, and will use the middle one-third
of SLAC two-mile Linac. Figure 1 shows the overall
scheme of the radiation safety system of LCLS-II .

Linac. Therefore, a shielding wall separating the S 10
vault and Linac area has been designed, with the help of
comprehensive FLUKA [2, 3] simulations, to protect
personnel in LCLS-I injector construction. FACET
has a chicane with two legs to compress electron and
position bunches beside the injector vault. The wall
design is based on the FACET beam loss scenarios and
the corresponding dose limitations listed in Table 1. The
dose limitation corresponds to normal 10 W losses when
chicane is "ON" is the most restricted one and thus
defines the wall design. This paper focuses on radiation
doses under normal loss scenarios.
Table 1. FACET beam loss scenarios and shield criteria.
Scenario Beam Loss Dose Limitation
Chicane 10 GeV, 10 W 10 mSv/year
ON (5 W on each leg) (5 Sv/h for 2000
Normal Chicane 10 GeV, 5 W on hours)
OFF straight line 0.5 pSv/h/W
Mis-steering 10 GeV, 10 W 4 mSv/h
Maximum credible 14 GeV, 62 kW 0.25 Sv/h
beam 4 ptSv/h/W
Figure 2 shows the top view of the shielding wall
with FACET chicane magnets and a 3D representation
of the wall. The wall consists of poured concrete and
steel embedded in concrete to fit into the limited space
defined by the injector design. Since beam losses may
happen at any location along the chicane, seven (7)
representative loss points were selected for simulations.
Figure 3 shows the radiation dose (using FLAIR ) at
beam height behind the designed S10 wall when 10 W
beam is lost on the straight section between chicane
magnets, where beam losses can deliver the largest dose
to the injector vault. Note that the dose is in the linear
scale of 1-10 pSv/h and the dimension is in the unit of
