Abstract

Results of experiments to produce coherent radiation in the vacuum ultraviolet (VUV) and extreme ultraviolet (XUV) by highorder optical nonlinearities in rare gases are described. Frequency conversion into the third and fifth harmonics was used to obtain pulses at 146.1 and 87.7 nm. VUV pulses at 146.1 and 119.6 nm were directly generated from infrared radiation by generating the ninth and eleventh harmonics of 1.315mum iodine laser pulses. Frequency conversion into the eleventh harmonic is the highestorder nonlinear process of this kind reported to date.
