Paper Abstract

We have been developing an ultrashort-pulse high-intensity vacuum ultraviolet (VUV) laser. Ultrashort VUV pulses at 126 nm have been produced in rare-gases by nonlinear wavelength conversion of an infrared Ti:sapphire laser at 882 nm. This pulse will be amplified inside an Ar2* amplifier excited by optical-field-induced ionization electrons. The amplification characteristics of the Ar2* amplifier has been improved by plasma channeling induced by a high-intensity plasma-initiating laser.
