To prepare for future experiments on coherent spectroscopy and quantum control in the VUV spectral regions, we have pursued direct frequency comb spectroscopy and generation of phase coherent VUV frequency combs. High-finesse, low-dispersion passive optical cavities are used to enhance the power of femtosecond pulses for extreme nonlinear optics and to increase detection sensitivity for spectroscopy.
