The Metrology Light Source (MLS) is an electron storage ring containing 24 quadrupole magnets which can be powered individually. Fully exploring the capabilities of the machine optics by tracking or experiment would be very time consuming. Therefore the quadrupoles were combined in five families and a numerical brute force approach was used to scan for areas of stable solutions in the scope of linear beam optics. In order to get information on the expected beam lifetimes for each generated optics, a model for the Touschek lifetime was implemented. Simulation results as well as experimental tests of selected optics will be presented.
