We present here 3D-PIC simulation with the code ILLUMINATION for the interaction of a short (sub-10fs) high power (Terawatt to Petawatt) Laser pulse with underdense plasmas. This range covers the parameter regime of the new Light wave synthesizer (LWS) currently under construction at MPQ. Further the advantages of sub-10fs pules compared to longer pulses will be studied.
