Sharp periodic enhancement of high-harmonic generation synchronized to prepulse-induced cluster vibration is observed. Tenfold enhancement of high-harmonic-generation efficiency is achieved by optimal selection of the prepulse-pump delay. This strong correlation between high-harmonic generation and cluster vibration also provides a new tool for studying the vibrational dynamics of nanometer atomic clusters.
