Abstract

We investigate theoretically the enhancement of the low-order harmonic emission from a polar molecular medium. The results show that, by using a control laser field, the intensity of the spectral signals near fourth-order harmonics will increase over 25 times as a result of the four-wave mixing process. Moreover, the enhancement effects depend strongly on the carrier-envelope phase of the initial laser fields, which cannot be found in a symmetric system.
