The smallest vertical emittance achieved in single-bunch-mode operation of the Accelerator Test Facility is discussed. It satisfies the requirement of the x-band linear collider. With a laser-wire beam-profile monitor installed in the damping ring, the emittances are measured. It is found that the smallest vertical rms emittance measured at low intensity is 4pm at a beam energy of 1.3 GeV.
