Paper Abstract

The temporal characteristics of the harmonic emission from solid targets irradiated with intense laser pulses is examined in detail. In the case where the CoherentWake Emission mechanism is dominant it is found that indeed the harmonics thus produced possess a frequency chirp resulting in non Fourier-Transform-Limited pulses. A simple model explains the underlying physics while Particle-In-Cell simulations support the conclusions drawn.
