Abstract

Using a 150-µm-thick CsLiB6O10 crystal, we produced 100-fs, >200-nJ light pulses tunable between 175 and 180 nm by sum-frequency generation at a 1-kHz repetition rate with an all-solid-state laser system mixing the fourth harmonic of a femtosecond Ti:sapphire regenerative amplifier and the idler pulse from a traveling-wave optical parametric amplifier.

Spectra of the VUV pulses at λ3 obtained by SFG in CLBO demonstrating the tunability range. λ2 = 196 nm (leftmost spectrum), λ2 = 197.5 nm (central spectra), and λ2 = 200 nm (rightmost spectrum).

Average power or energy produced in the VUV by SFG at λ3 = 180 nm with λ2 = 200 nm versus delay between the interacting pulses. The LBO crystal simultaneously measured and presented for comparison here is cut at ϕ = 80° for type I (ooe) interaction in the xy plane.
