Abstract

In a series of Particle-In-Cell (PIC) simulations we have studied the feasibility of generation of single intense attosecond pulses using the surface harmonics mechanism and investigated the effect of various parameters to the generation process. In 3D-PIC simulations we found that the plasma scale-length greatly affects the generation process. We have also demonstrated that the polarization gating technique for the generation of single attosecond pulses is applicable to the mechanism under realistic conditions of oblique incidence. Results of the systematic study are presented and discussed.
