Harmonic lasing in XFELs is an opportunity to extend operating range of existing and planned X-ray FEL user facilities*. Contrary to nonlinear harmonic generation, harmonic lasing can provide much more intense, stable, and narrow-band FEL beam which is easier to handle due to the suppressed fundamental. Another interesting application of harmonic lasing is Harmonic Lasing Self-Seeded (HLSS) FEL*,** that allows to improve longitudinal coherence and spectral power of a SASE FEL. Recently*** this concept was successfully tested at FLASH2 in the range 4.5 - 15 nm. That was also the first experimental demonstration of harmonic lasing in a high-gain FEL and at a short wavelength (before it worked only in infrared FEL oscillators). In this contribution we describe the concepts of harmonic lasing and of HLSS FEL, and present the experimental results from FLASH2.
