We demonstrate the generation of 10-µJ coherent extreme-ultraviolet (XUV) light at wavelengths from 73.6 to 42.6 nm, using high-order harmonics. The peak power of this coherent XUV light is estimated to be 0.13 GW at 62.3 nm, and the peak brightness achieved was 3×1028 photons/(mm2mrad2s) . To our knowledge, this XUV energy is the highest value achieved with high-order harmonics.
