Quasi-phase-matching of high-harmonic generation

Abstract:

This thesis describes the use of counterpropagating pulse trains to quasi-phase-match high-harmonic generation (HHG).

Two novel techniques for generating trains of ultrafast pulses are described and demonstrated. The first method makes use of a birefringent crystal array to split a single pulse into a sequence of pulses. The second method makes use of the time-varying polarisation of a chirped pulse passed through a multiple-order wave plate to generate a train of pulses by the addi...
