Abstract

A method is proposed that uses maximum entropy analysis of a Young's two-slit interference pattern for the measurement of the spectrum of a high-harmonic-generation light source. The approach is tested using experimental data, and the results are found to be consistent with those obtained directly using a grazing incidence spectrometer.
