8.8 Conclusions

Strong-field processes in the few-optical cycle regime are significantly affected by the carrier-envelope phase of the driving pulses and the control of such parameter is essential for many application, particularly for the generation of isolated and reproducible attosecond pulses. In this chapter we have reviewed, both from an experimental and a theoretical point of view, the influence of CEP on high-order harmonic generation. Moreover the role of CEP on the phase of the individual harmonics has been determined, using a self-referencing technique based on the interference of attosecond light pulses.
