Abstract

We investigate the high-order harmonic generation (HHG) in a semiconductor quantum dot (SQD) and metallic nanorod (MNR) complex driven by a moderate intensity (<1012W/cm2) frequency-chirped Gaussian few-cycle pulse. Our numerical results indicate that the cutoff energy of the HHG can be controlled by optimizing the shape of the MNR and surface-to-surface distance between the SQD and the MNR. We also show that the extreme ultraviolet supercontinuum harmonics (25 eV maximal photon energy) and isolated ultrashort pulses (2.67–4.36 fs FWHM) are achievable.
