The amplification of UV radiation and high order harmonics (HOH) in plasmas is a subject of raising interest
due to its different potential applications in several fields like environment and security (detection at distance),
biology, materials science and industry (3D imaging) and atomic and plasma physics (pump-probe experiments).
In order to develop these sources, it is necessary to properly understand the amplification process. Being the
plasma an inhomogeneous medium which changes with time, it is desirable to have a full time-dependent 3D
description of the interaction of UV and XUV radiation with plasmas. For these reasons, at the Instituto de
Fusi´on Nuclear we have developed DAGON, a 3D Maxwell-Bloch code capable of studying the full spationtemporal
structure of the amplification process abovementioned.
