PRL success for CTAMOP researchers

Last updated June 7, 2017 by Andrew Brown

XIHHG Spectra of neonCTAMOP researchers in the intense-laser-atom interaction group have recorded another world-leading publication in the field of attoseond science.

The paper appears in the prestigious Physical Review Letters, and reports a new mechanism known as XUV-initiated high-harmonic generation.

Following on from the group’s successful collaboration with experimentalists earlier this year, this work represents yet another step forward for highly accurate, ab initio theory, which previously has lagged behind experimental advances. The calculations reported represent, for the first time, theory leading experiment in attosecond physics.
