Abstract
We introduce an ultra-thin attosecond optical delay line based on controlled wavefront division of a femtosecond infrared pulse after transmission through a pair of micrometer-thin glass plates with negligible dispersion effects. The time delay between the two pulses is controlled by rotating one of the glass plates from absolute zero to several optical cycles, with 2.5 as to tens of attosecond resolution with 2 as stability, as determined by interferometric self-calibration. The performance of the delay line is validated by observing attosecond-resolved oscillations in the yield of high harmonics induced by time delayed infrared pulses, in agreement with a numerical simulation for a simple model atom. This approach can be extended in the future for performing XUV-IR attosecond pump-probe experiments. (C) 2020 Optical Society of America
