ATTOSECOND PHOTONICS

Locking the waveform with a quartz crystal

Nature Photonicsvolume 12pages256257 (2018) | Download Citation

High-order harmonics in the extreme-ultraviolet regime can be produced and a stable waveform-locked attosecond pulse can be formed when quartz is excited by a strong short-pulsed laser, providing a robust path towards attosecond photonics.
