AB  - Three s-band RF guns are installed at the front end of the Advanced Photon Source (APS) linac: two thermionic cathode guns (RG2 and RG1), and one Photo-Cathode Gun (PCG). During normal operations, RG2 provides electron beams for the storage ring to generate x-rays for APS users. The PCG generates high brightness electron beams that can be accelerated through the APS linac and transported into the Linac Extension Area (LEA) for advanced accelerator technology and beam physics experiments. The alternating acceleration of the RG2 and PCG beam in the linac is possible, as most of the time, RG2 beam is only needed for ~20 seconds every two minutes. This mode of interleaving operation of RG2 and PCG beams through the APS linac requires some modifications/additions to several systems of the linac, including RF, magnets, controls and Access Control Interlock System etc. In this paper we report our interleaving design and present the commissioning results of the two beam interleaving operation.
