The ultimate goal is generating sub-30fs pulses with photon energies between 5eV and 11eV via resonant dispersive wave (RDW) generation in a succeeding HCF. The interim goal, discussed herein, is producing 30fs pulses with sufficient energy (uW level) for RDW generation. Using second harmonic generation frequency resolved optical gating (SHG-FROG) we currently measure 174fs, 4.0uJ pulses. We will provide explanations for the shortcoming and suggest several possible solutions to address it. Event Location: AMPEL room 311
