Phase-Matched High-Order Harmonics from N2 Using kHz Femtosecond Laser Pulses



We report the phase-matched high-harmonic generation from N2 driven by kHz femtosecond laser pulses. By varying the position of the laser focus in the gas tube, we observe the radiation of different harmonics. Our results provide a potential source for studying ultrafast molecular dynamics.
