The Deep Ultra Violet Free Electron Laser (DUV-FEL) experiment has reached a milestone by saturating the Free Electron Laser using High Gain Harmonic Generation (HGHG) method in the Source Development Laboratory (SDL) at NSLS. It utilizes the 10 m long, 3.9 cm period NISUS wiggler. The goal of the project is to produce radiation at a wavelength less than 100 nm, utilizing the HGHG method. HGHG at 266 nm has been accomplished by seeding with the 800 nm Ti:Sapphire laser and observed saturation. The third harmonic at 88 nm accompanying the 266 nm is being used in an ion pair imaging experiment in chemistry. We discuss the measurement of energy, gain, spectrum, and pulse length of the FEL output. We also describe the diagnostics used for operating the FEL.
