Modes of operation

  • Focusing and target geometry (gas medium) adjusted to optimize the flux at requested wavelengths
  • Single HHG beam/double beam configurations
  • Monochromatized (using a grating monochromator or wavelength-selective multilayer optics)/multi-color radiation (as generated, i.e. a combination of high-order harmonics of the laser)
  • Employment with synchronized pulses of VIS/IR or X-rays is allowed.

Diagnostics

  • EUV spectrometer
  • EUV wavefront sensor
  • Energy meter.

The mechanism of high-order harmonic generation in gas will be employed in a kHz beam line of ultra-short pulses of tunable coherent EUV–soft X-ray radiation that will be installed in the E1 hall of the ELI-Beamlines facility.
