Paper Abstract

The role of multiphoton resonances in the formation of the `plateau,' characteristic of high- order harmonic generation, is examined by a series of experiments on both above-threshold ionization and harmonic generation in the rare gases. The shift of intermediate states in and out of resonance by ac Stark effect plays an essential role in the production of high-order harmonic radiation and is found to be responsible for the initiation of the plateau.
