Abstract

A Ti:sapphire oscillator with an extended cavity generates pulses with 0.5 μ J energy at a repetition rate of 6 MHz and pulse durations of 50 fs . Tight focusing creates peak intensities exceeding 10 14 W cm 2 , which is sufficient for ionizing helium, a nonlinear process where at least 17 photons are absorbed simultaneously.
