We discovered a new high-order harmonic generation regime in the interaction of multi-TW relativistic-irradiance femtosecond lasers with gas jet targets. The spectra consisting of hundreds of even and odd harmonic orders are generated by either linearly or circularly polarized pulses. We proposed a new harmonic generation mechanism, where the harmonics are collectively emitted by oscillating electron spikes, whose sharpness and stability are explained by catastrophe theory.
