Title: Magnetic Bunch Compression for a Compact Compton Source

A compact electron accelerator suitable for Compton source applications is in design at the Center for Accelerator Science at Old Dominion University and Jefferson Lab. Here we discuss two options for transverse magnetic bunch compression and final focus, each involving a 4-dipole chicane with M_{56} tunable over a range of 1.5-2.0m with independent tuning of final focus to interaction point $$\beta$$*=5mm. One design has no net bending, while the other has net bending of 90 degrees and is suitable for compact corner placement.
