In this paper we report on developments of the 25 MeV racetrack microtron (RTM) that will be the electron source for the second phase of the TEUFEL project, to generate radiation of 10 µm in a 2.5 cm period hybrid undulator. The theoretical understanding of this unconventional, azimuthally varying field type of RTM has been extended. A comparison of analytically calculated orbit stability with that based on measured data will be presented; orbit calculations using measured field data show the designed performance. Construction and tuning of the 1300 MHz, 2.2 MV microwave cavity have been completed, and signal level measurements have been performed. The overall assembly of the microtron is nearing completion. At present a vacuum pressure better than 5 × 10-7 Torr is achieved.
