Extreme Ultraviolet Interferometer Using High-Order Harmonic Generation from Successive Sources
MetadataShow full item record
We present a new interferometer technique whereby multiple extreme ultraviolet light pulses are generated at different positions within a single laser focus (i.e., from successive sources) with a highly controllable time delay. The interferometer technique is tested with two generating media to create two extreme ultraviolet light pulses with a time delay between them. The delay is found to be a consequence of the Gouy phase shift. Ultimately the apparatus is capable of accessing unprecedented time scales by allowing stable and repeatable delays as small as 100 zs.
