We have successfully demonstrated intensity enhancement of a single high-order harmonic at a wavelength of 46.76 nm by using low-ionized tin ions in a laser-ablation plume as the nonlinear medium. The ablation plume was produced by irradiating a solid tin target with a 10 mJ energy picosecond laser pulse. Strong 17th-harmonic generation at a wavelength of 46.76 nm was observed with a conversion efficiency of about 10 4 . We attribute the strong enhancement of the single high-order harmonic to multiphoton resonance with a strong radiative transition of the Sn II ion.
