We proposed and theoretically demonstrated an optimized gating scheme, which we called infrared double optical gating (IRDOG), to create isolated attosecond pulses (IAPs) with a multicycle laser pulse. Our simulation shows that IAP can be generated by using a pulse up to 60 fs and carrier-envelop phase stabilization is not required.
