Summary

Techniques to characterize attosecond harmonic pulses based on thecross-correlation between harmonic and IR laser pulses are presented. The selfcompressionof an attosecond harmonic pulse in the harmonic generation itself has been demonstrated, obtaining near transform-limited attosecond harmonic pulses.
