Abstract

The generation of broadband tunable optical pulses is demonstrated in the range of 10501300nm with noncollinear optical parametric amplification of white-light seed pulses in potassium titanyl phosphate (KTiOPO4). Pulse bandwidths of 50nm (12THz) are demonstrated with pulse energies up to 20μJ when pumped with 500μJ, 150fs pulses centered at 802nm. The required signal–pump angles range from 1.9° to 5.0°. The pulse duration was 60fs after compression.
