Generation & Application of High-Order Harmonics

Coherent extreme ultraviolet and soft X-ray radiation produced by high order harmonic generation (HHG) of high power femtosecond laser pulses are currently finding wide application in physics, chemistry, biochemistry and biology. The main activity of our group is to improve the conversion efficiencies and the coherence properties of our HHG source and to increase the harmonic photon energy down to the water window region between 2 and 5 nm. The HHG source will be applied to the development of new imaging techniques and to the study of ultrafast dynamics of atom and molecules.

Location: Swinburne University of Technology, Hawthorn Campus 
Supervisor: Professor Lap Van Dao and Professor Peter Hannaford
