Enhanced Harmonic Generation in Relativistic Laser Plasma Interaction
High harmonic generation on solid targets is considered a promising route towards compact sources for intense and ultrashort XUV and X-Ray pulses. The intensity of emitted harmonic radiation usually reduces with increasing harmonic order. In contrast, we report the enhancement of individual harmonics generated at an ultra-steep plasma vacuum interface. Theory and simulations show that the enhancement of selected harmonics can be described by the reflection of the incident laser pulse at a relativistic mirror oscillating at both the laser and the plasma frequency.
