A low-emittance electron beam line for accelerator-based R&D hardware experimentation and study of novel accelerator techniques is under development at the injection linac of the Advanced Photon Source (APS). The Linac Extension Area (LEA) beam line will operate at the full 400 MeV energy of the APS linac. The electron beam is generated from a photo-cathode (PC) electron gun delivering 300 pC of charge with a 3 ps, rms bunch length and normalized beam emittance of ~ 1 micron. The bunch length can be compressed to 150 fs in a flexible chicane at a beam energy of 150 MeV. The APS linac contains an extensive set of conventional and advanced beam diagnostics including a recently commissioned s-band transverse deflecting cavity. The low-emittance electron beam is transported to an independent experimental tunnel enclosure that contains the LEA beam line. Implementing the LEA beam line separate from the APS injector complex allows for on-demand access to the area to perform work without interrupting beam operations of the APS. We discuss the overall scheme of the existing linac beam delivery & diagnostic systems, and report the design of the LEA beam line and initial planned experiments.
