Summary form only given. High harmonic generation (HHG) requires high peak-power laser sources. Most of the well-known high peak power lasers are operating in the near-IR wavelength region. Recently it was demonstrated that HHG can be effectively phase matched in the soft X-ray region by using very high intensity UV lasers and multiply charged ions [1]. High average and high peak power UV sources operating around and below 280 nm are required for many other applications, such as ablation in ophthalmology, materials processing and photoelectron spectroscopy. Due to lack of ultrafast high peak power lasers operating in UV, generation of ultrashort UV pulses is possible by up-converting frequency of near-IR laser. This can be done by cascaded harmonic generation in nonlinear crystals with efficiency higher than 40% [2]. However, to obtain high pulse energies in UV region, high energy IR pump is necessary. This becomes increasingly difficult for femtosecond laser pulses because of the optical damage problem in CPA systems. Very high pulse stretching rates in the CPA become unfeasible due to the limited size of dispersive optics. Alternatively, the intensity in the laser cavity can be decreased by using a pulse burst which effectively increases the pulse duration. Therefore, this approach is also suitable for increasing energy throughput in fiber delivery and fiber post compression schemes [3]. © 2017 IEEE
