In order to perform spectroscopy of highly charged ions in the extreme ultraviolet (XUV) with unprecedented resolution, we have built an XUV frequency comb by transferring a near-infrared frequency comb to the XUV by means of high-harmonic generation [1,2]. To reach the required peak intensity levels at a 100 MHz repetition rate, 200 fs laser pulses are amplified to 80 W in a chirped-pulse fiber amplifier and resonantly overlapped in a femtosecond enhancement cavity . By this means, an average power of 25 kW, corresponding to a peak intensity of ≈ 3·1014 W/cm2, is reached in the cavity focus. High harmonics up to the 35th order are coupled out of the cavity and will be guided to trapped and sympathetically cooled highly charged ions  in a superconducting Paul trap to perform direct XUV frequency comb spectroscopy.
