Today, injection of high-energy short-pulse laser chains requires an energy of several tens of milli- joules and a somehow broad spectrum. Several methods have been proposed to achieve this goal, including Optical Parametric Chirped Pulse Amplification or regenerative amplification in Ti:sapphire. In both cases, a high energy pump laser is required at wavelengths where laser diodes can not be used. As a result, the main limitation is the available pumping energy.
