Abstract

We describe the design of a continuously tunable Ti:sapphire regenerative amplifier that is capable of sustaining amplification over a wavelength range from 730 nm to more than 800 nm. The amplifier cavity is tuned with a prism pair in combination with a spherical mirror. It sustains an oscillation bandwidth of 5 nm and produces a chirped output pulse energy of 1.2 mJ compressible to a duration of 140 fs at 745 nm. We present a calculation of the theoretical bandwidth.
