Abstract

Within this work we present results of an experimental campaign studying the influence of the adiabatic and non-adiabatic blue shift on high-order harmonic (HH) radiation spectra. The results demonstrate that we are able to spectrally tune the HH radiation to cover more than 50% of the spectrum between 17 nm and 35 nm, paving the way to performing injection-seeded soft X-ray laser (SXRL) experiments with Mo, Zr and Y.
