Abstract

The results of a study of fifth-harmonic production in neon and argon irradiated with 248-nm picosecond laser pulses are presented. Focused intensities range from 1013 to 1015 W/cm2. Data for fifth-harmonic intensity as a function of both target density and focused laser intensity are presented and compared with theory. For the laser intensities and medium densities studied, estimates for the linear and nonlinear components of Δk, the wave-vector mismatch between the fundamental and harmonic waves, indicate that the nonlinear component is much greater than the linear component.
