Pulses with durations shorter than 10 fs have been produced in several laboratories by using Ti:sapphire oscillators. Chirped pulse amplification (CPA) can be used to amplify such pulses to energies of a few tens of millijoules.1 The limitations introduced during the amplification of such short pulses can be found by studying the spectral properties of Ti:sapphire amplifiers.
