  In quasi diffraction-limited synchrotron light sources especially in the low-to-medium energy range, emittance growth due to intrabeam scattering (IBS) is a serious concern. To mitigate the IBS, a double rf system is used to lengthen the beam bunches. In the double RF system, the performance of bunch lengthening is limited by the transient beam-loading effect which is induced by bunch gaps in the fill pattern. Even if the superconducting (SC) harmonic cavities (HCs) are used, the performance of bunch lengthening is limited when the bunch gap is large. To improve their performances, we propose the use of a single "kicker" cavity having low loaded Q. The "kicker" cavity provides an rf voltage that is comparable to the fluctuating rf voltages in the main and harmonic cavities, and mitigates the phase shift of beam bunches over the bunch train, while keeping its required generator power modest. As a results of our numerical investigation, the significantly improvement of the bunch lengthening performance can be expected. We will present the concept of this technique and show expected bunch-lengthening performances.
