A 40-period superconducting transverse gradient undulator (TGU) has been designed and fabricated at Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT). Combining a TGU with a Laser Wakefield Accelerator (LWFA) is a potential key for realizing an extremely compact Free Electron Laser (FEL) radiation source. The TGU scheme is a viable option to compensate the challenging properties of the LWFA electron beam in terms of beam divergence and energy spread. In this contribution, we report on the operational experience of this TGU inside its own cryostat and show the current status of the TGU and the further plan for experiments.
