Noncollinear Optical Gating – A method for intra-cavity single attosecond pulse generation?

The process of high-order harmonic generation requires laser intensities around 1014 W/cm2, most easily reached with laser pulses of high energy, thus implicitly limiting the repetition rate of attosecond sources. A route towards multi-MHz attosecond sources relies on HHG inside a passive enhancement cavity [1]. Although successfully demonstrated for attosecond pulse trains, the generation of single attosecond pulses (SAPs) inside a cavity remains an unsolved challenge, mainly limited by dispersion management and out-coupling problems. We recently proposed a new gating concept for SAP generation [2], noncollinear optical gating (NOG) which has the potential to facilitate SAP gating and efficient out-coupling at once. Similar to the recently introduced attosecond lighthouse [3] NOG employs attosecond angular streaking [4] and combines this concept with noncollinear HHG, proposed earlier [5] as out-coupling method for intra cavity HHG.
