Abstract

Efficient optical parametric amplification of a frequency-upconverted output of a photonic-crystal fiber (PCF) is demonstrated using a double-pass parametric amplifier pumped by 65mW 150fs 100kHz second-harmonic pulses of a Ti:sapphire laser. Such an amplifier provides gain factors in excess of 103 for the blueshifted PCF output, generating wavelength-tunable light pulses within the spectral range from 420to650nm. Parametrically amplified pulses have a peak power up to 250kW and a pulse width of about 200fs at a repetition rate of 100kHz, providing an average power up to 5mW.

(b) GVD as a function of the wavelength for the fundamental (1) and higher-order (2–4) modes of the fused-silica PCF with the cross section shown in (a). Intensity profiles for the PCF modes are shown in insets 1–4. Curve 5 (open circles) presents the GVD for the off-center waveguide channel with a diameter of 1.5 μ m shown by a circle in the PCF image..
