Allan: DM: Long and Short Wavelength Optical Sources for Attosecon d Science

Attosecond science has the potential to observe and even control electron dynamics in real time, and has until now relied on high harmonic generation driven by mode-locked titanium:sapphire lasers. In this talk I will discuss recent work on developing new sources for attosecond science at longer (1800 nm) and shorter (3 nm) wavelengths.

JC/DM: Sebastian: Enhancing the limits of high harmonic generation

I will give a general overview about the three experiments running at the Red Dragon Lab, which are trying to enhance the limits of HHG. These experiments are: HGG towards the water window by using NIR driving fields combined with high pressure gas targets, the effective generation of VUV using a length tunable gas cell and in a later stage multi-color light fields and the HHG in a liquid jet.
