Investigation of vibrating-hydrogen based ultrashort molecular phase modulator

Abstract:

This thesis investigates the coherent phase modulation of ultrashort pulses using vibrating hydrogen as a molecular medium.

Self-phase modulation in a gas-filled hollow core capillary allows the generation of highpower few-cycle pulses in the NIR. Such pulses can be used to drive high harmonic generation (HHG) to deliver attosecond duration pulses in the extreme ultraviolet and soft X-ray spectral region. While reaching unrivalled pulse durations (down to 67 as), these sources ...
