  Since 10 years FLASH at DESY (Hamburg, Germany) has provided high brilliance FEL radiation at XUV and soft X-ray wavelengths for user experiments. Recently FLASH has been upgraded with a second undulator beamline, FLASH2, whose commissioning takes place in parallel of the user operation on FLASH1. This paper summarizes the performance of the FLASH facility during the last user period from January 2014 to April 2015.

  FLASH2, the second undulator beamline of the FLASH FEL user facility at DESY (Hamburg, Germany) is under commissioning. Its first lasing was achieved in August 2014. FLASH is the first soft X-ray FEL operating two undulator beamlines simultaneously. Both undulator beamlines are driven by a common linear superconducting accelerator with a beam energy of up to 1.25 GeV. Fast kickers and a septum are installed to distribute one part of the electron bunch train to FLASH1 and the other part to FLASH2 with full repetition rate. The commissioning of FLASH2 takes place primarily in parallel to FLASH1 user operation. Various beam optics measurements has been carried out in order to ensure the required electron beam quality for efficient SASE generation. This paper reports the status of the FLASH2 commissioning.

The free-electron laser facility FLASH at DESY operates in SASE mode with MHz bunch trains of high-intensity extreme ultraviolet and soft X-ray FEL pulses. A seeded beamline which is designed to be operated parasitically to the main SASE beamline has been used to test different external FEL seeding methods. First lasing at the 7th harmonic of a 266 nm seed laser using high-gain harmonic generation has been demonstrated. Studies of the influence of the microbunching instability are being pursued.
