Abstract

A dispersive-mirror-based laser permits a dramatic simplification of high-power femtosecond and attosecond systems and affords promise for their further development toward shorter pulse durations, higher peak powers, and higher average powers with user-friendly systems. The result of the continuous development of dispersive mirrors permits pulse compression down to almost single cycle pulses of 3fs duration. These design approaches together with the existing modern deposition technology pave the way for the manufacture of dielectric multilayer coatings able to compress pulses of tens of picoseconds duration down to a few femtoseconds.
