Many researchers are pushing for long wavelength driver pulses for high harmonic generation (hhg) the advantage of longer wavelengths is that the cut-off of the harmonic spectrum can be increased without the need for large electric fields. Simulating laser pulse propagation under optimized conditions for high-harmonic generation by matthew d turner a senior thesis submitted to the faculty of.
High harmonic generation (hhg) is a fascinating phenomenon from both fundamental and technological point of view it enables the generation of attosecond pulses and can have applications in euv lithography and bio-microscopy. High harmonic generation from transiently aligned molecules in a hollow-core waveguide a dissertation presented to the faculty of the school of engineering and applied science. We present a theoretical study of attosecond transient absorption in gases and high harmonic generation in solids in this thesis, different features in the attosecond transient absorption laser-dressed spectrum are studied, including features near bright (dipole allowed) atomic states and features that appear approximately one or two laser photons away from the bright states due to the laser.
