Abstract

We report a full experimental comparison study on the injection of a Ti:Sa multi-terawatt amplifier chain with a standard 15 fs Ti:Sa oscillator and 35 fs frequency-doubled fiber oscillator. The study highlights that the Ti:Sa oscillator, with high performance in terms of pulse duration and spectral width, can be replaced by the frequency-doubled fiber oscillator to seed Ti:Sa amplifier chains almost without any compromise on the output pulse duration and picosecond contrast. Finally, we demonstrate for the first time to our knowledge a 30 TW and 33 fs Ti:Sa amplifier injected by a fiber oscillator.
