Some next future experiments involving particle accelerators require a very precise synchronization between very short (< 200 fs) particle beams, laser pulses and RF accelerating waves. In fact, experiments like generation of short Free Electron Laser (FEL) radiation pulses, coherent x-ray production from laserelectron backscattering, high gradient acceleration techniques based on PlasmaWake Field Acceleration (PWFA) with injection of an external electron beam demand a synchronization performance that can vary from 500 fs to few fs between the pulses involved. The presentation is an overview of synchronization systems using electrical or optical reference distribution and shows their performance and range of application.
