Abstract

Tunable coherent extreme-ultraviolet (XUV) radiation at wavelengths as low as 66.86 nm was generated by two-photon resonant four-wave mixing in a hydrogen molecular gas jet. In this investigation, an ArF excimer laser was tuned to the E,F1Σg+(v=6)-X1Σg+(v=0)Q(1) transition of H2, and the second-harmonic radiation of a dye laser was mixed to obtain the resultant XUV radiation. To our knowledge, this tunable XUV radiation is the shortest wavelength obtained so far by two-photon resonant four-wave mixing.
