  FERMI is the seeded FEL user facility in Trieste, Italy, producing photons from the VUV to the soft X-rays with a high degree of coherence and spectral stability. Both FEL lines, FEL-1 and FEL-2, are available for users, down to the shortest wavelength of 4 nm. We report on the completion of the commissioning of the high energy FEL line, FEL-2, on the most recent progress obtained on FEL-1 and on the operational experience for users, in particular those requiring specific FEL configurations, such as two-colour experiments. We will also give a perspective on the improvements and upgrades which have been triggered based on our experience, aiming to maintain as well as to constantly improve the performance of the facility for our user community.

  Laser-heater systems are essential tools to control and optimize high-gain free electron lasers (FELs), working in the x-ray wavelength range. Indeed, these systems induce a controllable heating of the energy spread of the electron bunch. The heating allows in turn to suppress longitudinal microbunching instabilities limiting the FEL performance. In this communication, we show that a long-wavelength energy modulation of the electron beam induced by the laser heater can be preserved until the beam entrance in the undulators, affecting the FEL emission process. This non-uniform longitudinal heating can be exploited to investigate the electron- beam microbunching in the linac, as well as to control the FEL spectral properties. Here, we present experimental, analytical and numerical studies carried out at FERMI.

Many single-shot recording setups are based on the encoding of the information onto a laser pulse. This concerns in particular electro-optic sampling of bunch shapes, and VUV/X pulse monitors using transient reflectivity. The upgrade of these methods to high repetition rates presents challenging issues, that are due to the limited speed of the recording cameras. Recently [1], we demonstrated that multi-MHz repetition rates can be achieved using a relatively simple upgrade of existing setups, using the so-called "photonic time-stretch" technique. Here we present guidelines for the practical realization in the case of electro-optic sampling. We also present a performance analysis, and compare it to the spectral encoding case. The technique is potentially applicable to other cases where the information can be encoded on a chirped laser pulse, as, e.g., transient reflectivity diagnostics of XUV pulses.

LUNEX5 (free electron Laser Using a New accelerator for the Exploitation of X-ray radiation of 5th generation) aims at investigating compact and advanced Free Electron Laser (FEL). It comprises one one hand a 400 MeV superconducting linac for studies of advanced FEL schemes, high repetition rate operation (10 kHz), multi-FEL lines, and one the other hand a Laser Wake Field Accelerator (LWFA) for its qualification by a FEL application, an undulator line enabling advanced seeding and pilot user applications in the 40-4 nm spectral range. Following the CDR completion, different R&D programs were launched, as for instance on FEL pulse duration measurement, high repetition rate electro-optical sampling. The COXINEL ERC Advanced Grant aims at demonstrating LWFA based FEL amplification, thanks to a proper electron beam manipulation, with a test experiment under preparation. As a specific hardware is also under development such as a cryo-ready 3 m long undulator of 15 mm period is under development.
