Title: Enhancement of Relativistic Harmonic Generation by an Optically Preformed Periodic Plasma Waveguide

Abstract

Enhancement of relativistic third-harmonic generation by using an optically preformed periodic plasma waveguide was achieved. Resonant dependence of harmonic intensity on plasma density and density modulation parameters was observed, which is a distinct characteristic of quasi-phase-matching. The results demonstrate the potential of a modulated plasma waveguide in high-field applications.
