High Harmonic Generation

High Harmonic GenerationSimilar to the control of attosecond ionization by the control of the electromagnetic fields with sub-100 attosecond accuracy, the EM field can also be used to control the trajectories of laser field ionized electrons. By exact timing and phase control the field-liberated electrons recombine with the mother ion within a temporal window of less than 100 attoseconds, thus generating bursts of high order harmonic radiation in a very short time window.
