High order harmonics (HHG) were generated on noble gas cluster targets with different cluster sizes. The independently characterized cluster sources enabled experimental investigation of the recombination mechanism. HHG spectra were recorded for different backing pressures and gases (Ar, Xe) as a function of driver pulse ellipticity. Since the ellipticity-dependent HHG decay is essentially the same for the different gas-pressure pairs, we can conclude that the recombination process is dominated by atom-to-itself recollisions irrespective of cluster size and material.
