(a) Schematic of the experimental setup for FH generation by frequency doubling. (b) Schematic for FH generation by frequency mixing. L: lens with f = 20 cm, DM: dichroic mirror, DL: delay line. The off-axis parabolas have f = 5–10 cm focal lengths depending on their location. Note that the frequency mixing setup uses 50% of the laser energy, i.e., 3 μJ whereas the frequency doubling setup uses only 1.5 μJ.
(a) Dashed green line: spectrum of the UV beam obtained by frequency doubling, 2ω + 2ω → 4ω, central wavelength λ0 = 204.5 nm (6.04 eV), FWHM bandwidth Δλ = 1.34 nm (40 meV). Full blue line: spectrum obtained by frequency mixing, 3ω + ω → 4ω, λ0 = 197.5 nm (6.28 eV), Δλ = 1.75 nm (56 meV). (b) Data points from a cross correlation by frequency difference 4ω − ω → 3ω, showing a FWHM of 76 ± 3 fs.
Insert: focal spot of the UV beam at the focus of a f = 50 cm MgF2 lens. The full and dashed lines represent horizontal and vertical line-outs, respectively. The spot size is 48 × 49 μm at FWHM.

(a) Photoemission spectra taken on polycrystalline Cu with the femtosecond 6.28 eV beam at various incident flux values. The photon number is increased from N = 2 × 105 to N = 6 × 106 photons/pulse. (b) Shift of the Fermi level ΔE as a function of photons/pulse. (c) Resolution δE as a function of photons/pulse. The instrumental resolution is reached at low photon flux.
(a) Angle resolved photoemission data taken on Bi(111) surface at 130 K and along the Γ-M direction of the Brillouin zone using the UV femtosecond laser source. The bands crossing the Fermi level are surface states (indicated by arrows), b is a bulk band. (b) The corresponding Fermi surface obtained in the same experimental conditions.
(a) Photoemission spectrum at normal emission on Bi at 130 K as a function of pump-probe delay. (b) Blue circles: number of counts integrated in the range [100–300] meV as a function of pump-probe delay; green curve: the primitive integral of the experimental cross correlation of Fig. 2(b).
