  This paper presents experimental studies of the dispersion based fresh slice scheme at LCLS. This scheme lead to pulse shortening resulting in pulse lengths below 10 fs. Careful orbit control allowed generating two colors with individual delay control and color separation of more than 3%. Unlike the dechirper based fresh slice scheme, the dispersion based fresh slice scheme does not require additional hardware. Another key benefit of this scheme is a strong spectral stability making the photon pulse energy independent of the electron energy jitter.
