Amplification of high-order harmonics in a short laser pulse by stimulated interaction

Abstract

The case is considered of a weak Gaussian harmonic pulse of frquency (2s11)v passed through an atomic medium collinearly with an intense Gaussian laser pulse of frequency v . The harmonic beam may be amplified or deamplified according to the balance between stimulated emission and absorption. A simple analytic expression for the gain is derived in the… (More)
