We report (a) the observation of two-XUV-photon direct double ionization, while the two-XUV-photon sequential channel is open, (b) a second order autocorrelation of an ultra-broadband XUV continuum and (c) an XUV-pump–XUV-probe study of an induced atomic coherence with 1fs scale temporal resolution.
