© 2018 IEEE. At the KArlsruhe Research Accelerator (KARA), we use electro-optical sampling to measures profiles of compressed electron bunches during the microbunching instability. The observation of the complex dynamics of this instability is of special interest because it leads to intense THz radiation bursts. As the revolution frequency of the storage ring is 2.72 MHz, high detection rates are required to record the bunch profiles for every revolution with single-shot measurements. To achieve fast detection rates, we implemented a KIT-developed ultra-fast line array and recorded the electron bunch charge density for every revolution for 3.6 s with a data throughput of 1.4 GBytes/s.
