AB  - We propose to use existing LCLS copper S-band linac double bunch infrastructure to significantly improve LCLS-II hard X-ray performance. In our setup, we use the first bunch to generate a strong seeding X-ray signal, and the second bunch, initially traveling off-axis, to interact with the seed in the amplifier undulator and generate a near TW, 15 fs duration X-ray pulse in the 4 to 8 keV photon energy range. We investigate, via numerical simulations, the required transverse beam dynamics and the four crystals X-ray monochromator to be added to the existing LCLS-II beamline and discuss the final properties of the hard X-ray pulses and their potential application in high intensity, high-field physics experiments, including QED above the Schwinger critical field.
