  1. High intensity, laser solid interactions are capable of generating attosecond light bursts via high harmonic generation, most work focuses on single beam interactions. In this study, we perform a numerical investigation on the role of wavelength and polarization in relativistic, high harmonic generation from normal-incidence, two-beam interactions off plasma mirrors. We find that the two-beam harmonic generation mechanism is a robust process described by a set of well-defined selection rules. We demonstrate that the emitted harmonics from normal incidence interactions exhibit an intensity optimization when the incident fields are of equal intensity for two-color circularly-polarized fields.

  2. Abstract We report a method for the phase reconstruction of an ultrashort laser pulse based on the deep learning of the nonlinear spectral changes induce by self-phase modulation. The neural networks were trained on simulated pulses with random initial phases and spectra, with pulse durations between 8.5 and 65 fs. The reconstruction is valid with moderate spectral resolution, and is robust to noise. The method was validated on experimental data produced from an ultrafast laser system, where near real-time phase reconstructions were performed. This method can be used in systems with known linear and nonlinear responses, even when the fluence is not known, making this method ideal for difficult to measure beams such as the high energy, large aperture beams produced in petawatt systems.
