Abstract The FERMI Free Electron Laser (FEL) in Trieste, Italy operates in the extreme ultraviolet and soft x rays (EUV-SXR) wavelength range delivering high-fluence, stable, ultra-short pulses. Its unique design based on a seeded scheme and on tunable undulators allows unprecedented control of pulse parameters such as wavelength, phase, polarization, synchronization, pulse duration and implementation of multi-color FEL schemes. Both FEL-1 and FEL-2 lines with nominal wavelength range 100–20 nm and 20–4 nm, respectively, are open to users. We report on the unique features of FERMI, in particular those that have evolved beyond the original design, and on their application to pioneering experiments. We also present the upgrades that are planned to further expand the capabilities of this unique light source.
