- Optimization of an attosecond high-harmonic-generation setup towards higher orders
The Backbone of state of the art ultrafast metrology measurements is the high-harmonic-generation (HHG).
This process is driven by a few-cycle laser pulse being focused into a gas. In doing so, several harmonic orders
of the used light are generated and can thus be used for a variety of experiments. The maximum (aka. Cut-off)
energy reachable via this process depends on a variety of factors, e.g. the used gas or the chosen focussing.
The main part of the work will be the investigation of these factors in order to reach a higher Cut-off.
