    Abstract. This paper presents an experimental technique for measurement of the contrast ratio of ultrashort UV pulses. As a multiple-shot device based on the scheme of difference frequency generation this is, to our knowledge, the only cross correlator in the UV so far, which offers a dynamic...

    Ablation of submicron surface structures on LiNbO[sub 3] by short ultraviolet laser pulses (0.5 ps, 248 nm) is presented. Gratings with a period of 360 nm and a modulation depth of 80 nm are fabricated on the sample surface by single-laser-shot exposure. The structures are projection imaged by a...

    We demonstrate experimentally the extreme ultraviolet supercontinuum in the plateau of high-order harmonic emission from the argon gas cell driven by a 6.5 fs, 800 nm phase-stabilized laser pulse. The result is interpreted as a selection of single quantum path of the returning electrons due to...

    Today, light fields of controlled and measured waveform can be used to guide electron motion in atoms and molecules with attosecond precision. Here, we demonstrate attosecond control of collective electron motion in plasmas driven by extreme intensity (?1018?W?cm?2) light fields. Controlled...
