Maximize EUV-XUV photons through adaptive optics for HHG

The use of adaptive optics (AO) for IR wavefront control is essential to optimize the phase-matching conditions and therefore enhance the signal of the HHG. Furthermore, the vortex IR driver results in up-converted EUV with a wide range of orbital angular momentum...

Kirkpatrick–Baez active optics system at FERMI

Very nice results obtained at FERMI, demonstrating optimal focusing of FEL pulses using the KAOS active optics system using X-EUV wavefront sensor or HASO EUV from Imagine Optic. This sensor is used to align both mirrors of a custom, active Kirkpatrick-Baez focusing...
