Abstract
Extreme Ultraviolet (XUV) sources based on femtosecond laser - high order harmonic generation (HHG) in atomic gases are presently in a period of rapid development. The HHG sources offer the additional advantage of delivering much shorter pulses compared to those of plasma generation or synchrotron sources. Furthermore, because they are coherent sources with high photon energy, they support attosecond pulse (10-18 s) generation, pushing the frontiers in both science and technology. These pulses open up research on unprecedented time scales, characteristic of bound electron motion. Issues related to the production and characterization of such pulses are presented.
