Abstract

We present the simultaneous spatial characterization of two independent sources of high harmonic radiation from a series of interferograms. Our technique transfers the necessity of replicating and shearing the test beam to a second, independent beam that may be easier to manipulate, and thus opens the possibility to characterize complex light sources. We demonstrate our technique by reconstructing the wavefronts of two high harmonic beams and use this information to study the spatial properties of different quantum paths.
