Paper Abstract

We report on the first experimental demonstration of high order harmonic generation in rare gases directly from a high power Ytterbium doped fiber chirped pulse amplification system. The laser delivers 270 fs pulses in the 30-100 μJ energy range at repetition rate varying from 100 kHz to 1 MHz. A proper focalization allows reaching several 1013W/cm2 in the gas jet. We have been able to produce and detect harmonics up to order 31 in Ar, Kr, and Xe at 100kHz repetition rate. Harmonic generation at 1 MHz is also demonstrated in Xe up to harmonic 15.
