dc.description.abstract High power femtosecond VUV/XUV pulses covering new spectral regions have been generated through nonlinear interaction of a femtosecond KrF laser with xenon and argon. Conversion efficiencies as high as 10$\sp{-3}$ have been observed. A six-wave mixing process and several four-wave mixing processes under intense light field have been experimentally studied. The temporal duration of the femtosecond VUV pulse has been experimentally measured for the first time based on the defocusing caused by a femtosecond laser produced plasma.
