Abstract

We studied the optimum plasma conditions that are required for efficient high-order harmonic generation in platinum plume. Harmonics up to the 49th order (λ=16.32nm) are analyzed under various conditions of laser–plasma interaction. Time-resolved ultraviolet spectra of platinum plasma at both optimum and nonoptimum conditions of harmonic generation are presented. We calculated the ionization states of the plasma, free electron density, and singly charged ion density at different prepulse intensities and compared them with experimental results.

High harmonic spectra measured at (1) 24 ns and (2) 100 ns delays between the prepulse ( t = 210 ps ) and main pulse ( t = 35 fs ) . The harmonic spectrum at a longer delay shows a plateau-like distribution of the HH yield. These measurements were carried out at I pp = 1 × 10 10 W cm 2 and I mp = 8 × 10 14 W cm 2 .

Time-resolved UV spectra of the (a) optimum ( I pp = 1.5 × 10 10 W cm 2 ) and (b) “nonoptimum” platinum plasma conditions ( I pp = 2.2 × 10 10 W cm 2 ) . The main pulse interacts with the plasma 100 ns after the irradiation of target by the prepulse radiation. I mp = 8 × 10 14 W cm 2 .
