Abstract

Carrier-envelope-phase (CEP) controlled subcycle midinfrared pulses generated through two-color filamentation have been applied for high-harmonic (HH) generation in a crystalline silicon (Si) membrane. The HH spectrum reaches the ultraviolet region (<300nm), beyond the direct band gap of Si. The shape of the HH spectrum strongly depends on the CEP. The complex CEP dependence can be explained with the interference between different orders of the harmonics. The complete waveform characterization of the subcycle driver pulse using frequency-resolved optical gating capable of CEP determination plays a crucial role for investigation of the subcycle dynamics.
