Sources based on high order harmonics generated in gas with high power Ti: Sa lasers pulses represent promising candidates as seed for free electron laser (FEL) amplifiers for several reasons, as spatial and temporal coherence and wavelength tunability. We describe the research work plan under implementation at the SPARC FEL facility (Sorgente Pulsata e Amplificata di Radiazione Coerente, Italy)[a] in the framework of the EUROFEL programme. The main goal of the collaboration is to study and test the amplification and the FEL harmonic generation process of an input seed signal obtained as higher order harmonics generated both in crystal (400nm and 266 nm) and in gas (266nm, 160nm, 114nm) from a high intensity Ti: Sa laser.
