Abstract

We show that isolated subfemtosecond, extreme ultraviolet (XUV) pulses can be generated via harmonic generation in argon by few-cycle infrared pulses formed through filamentation-induced self-compression in neon. Our calculations show that the time structure of the XUV pulses depends sensitively on both the amplitude and the phase modulation that are induced in the driving pulse during the self-compression process.
