Title High Harmonic Seeding and the 4GLS XUV-FEL
Abstract The Fourth Generation Light Source (4GLS) project, proposed by the CCLRC in the U.K., will include free electron lasers in the XUV, VUV, and IR. It is proposed that the XUV-FEL, operating between 8-100 eV, be seeded by a high harmonic (HH) source, driven by an ultrafast laser system. This offers advantages in longitudinal coherence, synchronization, and the potential for chirped pulse amplification and pulse shaping. We discuss the issues of HH generation relevant to its use as a seed (energy, spectrum, tunability, synchronization and time structure) and the current planned implementation in the 4GLS XUV-FEL.
