Abstract

The interference pattern produced by a single 13 nm high-order harmonic pulse is captured by an extreme-ultraviolet CCD camera. A beam divergence of 0.35 mrad and a high fringe visibility of 0.96 are obtained with an optimal phase-matching condition for the 13 nm harmonics. The spatial coherence length of the 13 nm harmonics selected by Mo Si multilayer mirrors is larger than the beam diameter. This result shows that the 13 nm harmonic beam is useful for applications in interferometry, time-resolved studies of ultrafast dynamics.
