We have observed nonlinear optical processes such as two-photon double ionization and above threshold ionization of rare gases in the xuv region with intense high-order harmonics. Using two-photon double ionization in He, the pulse width of the 27th (42 eV) harmonic was measured by an autocorrelation technique, and found it to be 8 ns. A train of attosecond pulses was also characterized directly by the energy-resolved autocorrelation of the above threshold ionized electrons.
