Abstract

We demonstrate intense high-order harmonic generation from plasma that is created from different carbon targets. We obtain high-order harmonic energy in the multi-microjoule range for each harmonic order from the 11th to the 17th harmonic. By analyzing the target morphology and the plasma composition, we conclude that the intense harmonics from the bulk carbon targets originate from nanoparticles target.
