  • We report a study of the enhancement of the intensity of the 27th-harmonic radiation produced during the high-order harmonic generation from the GaAs plasma by controlling the chirp of the fundamental Ti:sapphire laser radiation. The influence of Ga and As ions on the enhancement of the 27th-harmonic radiation is also studied.
  • Experimentally observed strong enhancement of a single high-order harmonic in harmonic generation from low-ionized laser plasma ablation is explained as resonant harmonic generation. The resonant harmonic intensity increases regularly with the increase of the laser intensity, while the phase of the resonant harmonic is almost independent of the laser intensity. This is in sharp contrast with the usual plateau and cutoff harmonics, the intensity of which exhibits wild oscillations while its phase changes rapidly with the laser intensity. The temporal profile of a group of harmonics, which includes the resonant harmonic, has the form of a broad peak in eachmore » laser-field half cycle. These characteristics of resonant harmonics can have an important application in attoscience. We illustrate our results using examples of Sn and Sb plasmas.« less
  • The azimuthal dependence of third-order and cascaded second-order nonlinear coupling was used to measure the relative contributions of each to direct third-harmonic generation in {beta} -barium borate. This permitted the measurement of the values of tensor elements {chi}{sup (3)}{sub 10} , {chi}{sup (3)}{sub 11} , and {chi}{sup (3)}{sub 16} relative to the known {chi}{sup (2)}{sub ij} . Finally, conversion efficiencies to 3{omega} of up to 6{percent} were achieved with a femtosecond chirped-pulse amplification laser with 200thinspGW/cm{sup 2} in collimated beams. {copyright} {ital 1999} {ital Optical Society of America}
  • In the present work, laser-parameter effects on the isolated attosecond pulse generation from two-color high-order harmonic generation (HHG) process are theoretically investigated by use of a wave-packet dynamics method. A 6-fs, 800-nm, 6x10{sup 14}W/cm{sup 2}, linearly polarized laser pulse serves as the fundamental driving pulse and parallel linearly polarized control pulses at 400 nm (second harmonic) and 1600 nm (half harmonic) are superimposed to create a two-color field. Of the two techniques, we demonstrate that using a half-harmonic control pulse with a large relative strength and zero phase shift relative to the fundamental pulse is a more promising way tomore » generate the shortest attosecond pulses. As a consequence, an isolated 12-as pulse is obtained by Fourier transforming an ultrabroad xuv continuum of 300 eV in the HHG spectrum under half-harmonic control scheme when the relative strength {radical}(R)=0.6 and relative phase =0.« less
