  Ultra-short, high brightness electron beams, with applications to next generation light sources or advanced accelerators, require enhanced resolution of the longitudinal bunch properties to study effects such as the micro-bunching instability. In this paper, we describe a diagnostic that has the promise to achieve sub-femtosecond longitudinal resolution. The diagnostic employs a laser-electron beam interaction in an undulator magnet in tandem with a RF bunch deflecting cavity to impose a angular-longitudinal coordinate correlation on the bunch which is resolvable with standard optical systems. The fundamental underlying concepts of the diagnostic have been tested experimentally at the Brookhaven National Laboratory Accelerator Test Facility (BNL ATF) with the high-brightness electron beam and >100GW IR laser operating in the TEM10 mode. The results include a systematic study of the effects of this laser mode, and energy, on the beam angular projection. Initial runs from the x-band deflecting cavity will also be presented here.
