2008-10-14 16:39 - Quasi-phase-matched high harmonic generation in hollow core photonic crystal fibers

H. Ren, A. Nazarkin, J. Nold, and Philip St.J. Russell, Optics Express, Vol. 16, Issue 21, 17052-17059 (2008).

The potential of hollow core photonic crystal fiber as a nonlinear gas cell for efficient high harmonic generation is discussed. The feasibility of phase-matching this process by modulating the phase of ionization electrons using a counter-propagating laser field is shown. In this way, harmonics with energies of several hundreds of eV can be produced using fs-laser pump pulses of μJ energy.
