Together with the group of Prof. Philip Russel (Max Planck Institute for the Science of Light), we have demonstrated the generation of ultrashort 4.4 fs laser pulses. These short laser pulses originate from a supercontinuum generated in a gas-filled hollow-core photonic crystal fiber. We will use this unique source with a high repetition rate of 800 kHz and pulse energies of µJ soon in our experiments to control electron dynamics with the waveform of ultrashort laser pulses.
