We exploit high-order harmonic generation spectroscopy at the caustics of the recombining electron wave-packet as a method for directly comparing experimental spectra with ab-initio theories. Experimental results in xenon and comparison with ab-initio time-dependent configuration-interaction singles calculations allowed to assess the role of the wave-packet enhancement during the giant resonance. Results in argon show that this technique can also be applied to other targets.
