FLASH’s superconducting linac can produce bunch trains of up to 800 bunches within a 0.8 ms RF flat top at a repetition rate of 10 Hz. In standard operation during 2018, FLASH supplied up to 500 bunches in two bunch trains with independent fill patterns and compression schemes to each of the two beamlines. In 2018 first successful plasma accelerating experiments could be reported by the FLASHForward plasma wakefield acceleration experiment situated in a third beamline. We report on the highlights of FLASH operation in 2018/2019.
