Abstract

We report a study of the enhancement of the intensity of the 27th-harmonic radiation produced during the high-order harmonic generation from the GaAs plasma by controlling the chirp of the fundamental Ti:sapphire laser radiation. The influence of Ga and As ions on the enhancement of the 27th-harmonic radiation is also studied.
