Paper Abstract

We describe the generation of optical harmonics of high order during the interaction of intense femtosecond laser pulses with the surface of insulating and metallic solid targets. With a p- polarized fundamental beam from a titanium sapphire, chirped pulse amplification laser system ((lambda) equals 800 nm) we have observed even and odd harmonics up to the eighteenth order (lambda approximately equals 45 nm) for fundamental laser intensities of about 1017 to 1018 W/cm2.
