Abstract: Ramsey-like schemes have been recently introduced in combination with high-order laser harmonic sources for high-resolution spectroscopic studies in the extreme ultraviolet (XUV). Here we demonstrate a novel method, combining measurements only in a limited subset of randomly chosen time-sampling intervals, which lead us to perform the first high-resolution XUV spectroscopy of atomic argon with a simple split-pulse setup. Providing an experimentally simple and convenient solution to the problem of performing high-resolution absolute frequency measurements in the XUV, our approach will help paving new roads into this challenging spectral territory.
