    XUV frequency combs generated via high harmonic generation in femtosecond enhancement cavities (fsEC) are coherent, table-top sources of XUV and VUV capable of operating at very high repetition rates (>10 MHz) and high flux (>10^12 photons/s). Given this level of performance these fsEC sources are beginning to see use in more experiments as their characteristics are better understood, optimized and controlled. In this talk I will discuss our progress toward application of fsEC sources (in the 6-25 eV photon energy range) to angle-resolved photoemission spectroscopy (ARPES) of condensed matter systems, including equilibrium studies and time-resolved pump-probe measurements.
