An 11-fs, 5-kHz optical parametric/Ti:sapphire hybrid chirped pulse amplification system

Article

Abstract

We developed a noncollinear optical parametric/Ti:sapphire hybrid chirped pulse amplification system, which consists of a two-pass optical parametric amplifier and multipass Ti:sapphire amplifiers with adaptive phase control. The use of the parametric amplifier instead of a regenerative amplifier broadened the final spectrum significantly, resulting in 11-fs pulses with a peak power of 18 GW at 5 kHz.
