  FERMI@Elettra is a single-pass free-electron laser, based on seeded high-gain harmonic generation. Presently, the first phase of the project (covering the spectral range between 100 and 20 nm) is under commissioning. The free-electron laser performance depends on the quality of the electron beam. In the case of the FERMI linear accelerator, the latter is strongly influenced both by the wake-fields present in the accelerating sections and by possible misalignments of the various accelerator components. In order to investigate and compensate these effects, we performed a study based on local trajectory bumps. We demonstrate that this approach significantly improves the electron-beam quality and, eventually, the free-electron laser performance.

The FERMI@Elettra seeded Free Electron Laser has provided the first photons to the experimental stations during 2011. The first FEL line in operation is FEL-1, covering the wavelength range between 100 nm and 20 nm. The facility will be opened to users by the end of 2012. In the meantime the installation of the second FEL line, FEL-2 covering the higher energy range down to 4 nm, is progressing on schedule and first tests have started. A description of the status of the project is presented here.
