Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


Tunnel emission by and subsequent acceleration of electrons from rare gas atoms in high laser fields has emerged as a powerful process to generate extremely short bursts of electromagnetic radiation in the XUV spectral range. With proper choice of parameters, single XUV-pulses of several 100 attosecond duration can be produced. To date, temporal characterization of ultrashort XUV pulses has been successfully implemented through a two-color photoemission technique.
