Development of a low-dispersive phase modulation scheme for interferometric XUV experiments

Quantum interference spectroscopy schemes are well established in the visible range to control and resolve the static properties and dynamics of quantum systems. The underlying experimental techniques form also the basis for advanced nonlinear spectroscopy methods. In this project we develop the techniques to transfer these spectroscopic concepts to the XUV spectral domain. This involves the development of interferometric setups enabling phase cycling of optical pulses and their combination with high-order harmonic generation. The project is a collaborative work between the groups of Dr. L. Bruder and Prof. G. Sansone.
