  Optimization of the bunching process in a seeded FEL like FERMI@Elettra is an important aspect for machine operation. In this paper we discuss about the power detection of coherent radiation in the UV range as a valuable method for optimizing the bunching induced by the seeding process on the electron beam. Experimental results obtained at FERMI@Elettra are presented here. Measurements of UV coherent transition and diffraction radiation have been used to quantify the bunching produced by the seed laser at lower laser harmonics. The dependence of the laser induced CUVTR signal on various parameters is experimentally studied. Future upgrades and possibilities for bunching measurements at shortest wavelengths are also discussed.
