Strathclyde Open Access research that creates ripples...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of research papers by University of Strathclyde researchers, including by Strathclyde physicists involved in observing gravitational waves and black hole mergers as part of the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) - but also other internationally significant research from the Department of Physics.

Abstract

High harmonics (HHs) are an attractive source for seeding coherent free electron lasers (FELs). Critical to many FEL applications are noise characteristics and the potential manipulation of coherence properties of these sources. We investigate these issues using a numerical model of harmonic generation.
