Phase-matched high-order harmonic generation in a gas cell with midinfrared femtosecond pulses
MetadataShow full item record
We experimentally investigate the generation of high-order harmonics in a 4-mm-long gas cell using midinfrared femtosecond pulses at various wavelengths of 1240 nm, 1500 nm, and 1800 nm. It is observed that the yield and cutoff energy of the generated high-order harmonics critically depend on focal position, gas pressure, and size of the input beam which can be controlled by an aperture placed in front of the focal lens. By optimizing the experimental parameters, we achieve a cutoff energy at ~190 eV with the 1500 nm driving pulses, which is the highest for the three wavelengths chosen in our experiment.
