We present a theoretical investigation of high-order-harmonic generation (HHG) from impurity-doped materials. Based on the analysis of the exact numerical solutions of the time-dependent Schrödinger equation (TDSE) for one-dimensional models, we demonstrate the factorization of HHG yields as a product of an electron wave packet and the recombination cross section, in analogy to HHG from atoms and molecules in the gas phase. Furthermore, we show that the quantitative rescattering model based on this factorization accurately reproduces the TDSE results. This opens up new possibilities to study impurities in materials using the available techniques from strong-field physics.
