Abstract
A novel mechanism for efficient high harmonics generation is proposed based on the self- scattering of powerful femtosecond light pulse in the Raman-active medium. Within the framework of the closed self-consistent model the pulse field electrodynamics are investigated, a simple analytical formula for the spectrum generated is derived. The 'plateau' effect and the sharp cutoff of harmonic spectrum are predicted. Unlike the case of rare gases, the spectrum generated is found to be tuned by the variation of input ultrashort pulse intensity.
