  Generation of ultrashort x-ray pulses (femtoseconds to attoseconds) is attracting much attention within the x-ray FEL user community. At the Linac Coherent Light Source (LCLS), we have successfully delivered femtosecond x-ray pulses to the users with two operating modes – low-charge (20-40pC) scheme and emittance spoiling foil method. Diagnostics on the femtosecond beams is also a challenging topic and good progresses have been made at LCLS. In this paper we report the experimental studies on the two femtosecond operation schemes, the x-ray performance and also the diagnostic progress.
