The energy recovery linac (ERL) at KEK is highly expected as a next-generation light source accelerator. It will provide a high brilliance and short pulse X-ray that exceeds current radiation sources. A prototype machine, the compact ERL, is in the process of construction collaborating with researchers from Japan and overseas. The commissioning is scheduled to start in the end of the fiscal year 2013.
