Abstract

Ultrabroadband chirped mirrors with a bandwidth of 270 THz have been manufactured using the BASIC design approach. These mirrors were used to compress the supercontinuum of cascaded hollow fibers down to 4.6 fs. The pulse duration was measured with spectral phase interferometry for direct electric-field reconstruction (SPIDER).
