We study the generation of attosecond x-ray and ultraviolet pulses from relativistically driven overdense plasma targets with two-color incident light. Particle-in-cell simulations show that significant improvement in pulse intensity and isolation is achievable with appropriate laser and plasma parameters. Conversion of 5% of incident laser energy to its second harmonic can enhance the intensity of generated attosecond pulses by an order of magnitude. This approach allows the generation of higher attosecond pulse intensities with existing experimental laser technology and offers a powerful tool for the analysis of the dynamics of relativistic laser–plasma interaction.
