Paper Abstract

We present in this paper a laser-driven coherent EUV beamline resulting from the combination of a versatile high-order laser harmonic generator with a robust plasma-based EUV laser amplifier. Both devices can be used separetely or in synergy. Seeding of the plasma amplifier by a high-order harmonic beam leads to a strong improvement of the EUV laser beam divergence and uniformity. Moreover the system can be turned easily into a IR pump-XUV probe setup for plasma opacity probing. The possibility to generate two separate harmonic sources from the same gas cell offers the opportunity to explore EUV pump-EUV probe experiments.
