High-order harmonic generation from solid targets with 2 mJ pulses

Abstract : Harmonics up to the 18th order are generated from solid targets by focusing 2 mJ, 50 fs pulses at 800 nm to a spot size of 1:7 µm (FWHM). To our knowledge, this is the first demonstration of high-harmonic generation with a very short focal length paraboloid (f /1.4) and kilohertz laser system. The harmonics have a low divergence (<4°) compared to the driving beam and conversion efficiencies (>10-7 per harmonic) comparable to gas harmonics. No contrast enhancement techniques are employed, and the system is capable of operating at 500 Hz. © 2010 Optical Society of America.
