Abstract

Novel sources of coherent ultrashort high-frequency light is a topic of great interest. The process of high-order harmonic generation provides a practical scheme for producing attosecond bursts in the extreme ultraviolet from intense infrared lasers. In this paper we provide a theoretical study of the efficiency of this process for noble gas atoms. Results are presented from solutions of the quantum dynamics expressed by density functional theory and by the simplified Scrödinger equation.
