We present experiments in the time and frequency domains aimed at confirming the measured mutual phase coherence of time-delayed, collinear harmonic pulses. We show that pairs of phase-locked harmonic pulses of medium order can be generated for peak intensities up to ~1.5 1014W/cm2 in xenon, demonstrating the possibility of performing high-resolution spectroscopy in the extreme ultraviolet with Ramsey-like techniques.
