In situ ptychographic measurements of high-order harmonic sources from plasma mirrors: A theoretical and numerical study

Abstract : Measuring the spatial properties of high-order harmonic beams produced by high-intensity laser-matter interactions directly in the target plane is very challenging due to the extreme physical conditions at stake in the interaction area. A measurement scheme has been recently developed to obtain this information experimentally, which consists in adapting a lensless imaging method known as ptychography. In this paper, we present a theoretical validation of this method in the case of harmonic generation from plasma mirrors, using a combination of simple modeling and 2D Particle-In-Cell simulations. This study investigates the concept of in situ ptychography and supports the analysis of experimental measurements presented in previous publications.
