Abstract

A difference frequency generation scheme that is potentially applicable to self-stabilization of the carrier-envelope-offset phase is demonstrated for the first time with a fiber-laser-based system. By taking advantage of the unique dispersion of the photonic-crystal-fibers, short pulses at 615 nm can be efficiently and selectively generated with low noise via Cherenkov-radiation in a 23-mm-PCF with a mode-locked Yb-fiber laser. Difference frequency generation between the 615-nm pulses and the 1030-nm output pulses from the Yb-fiber amplifier produces pulses at ~1530 nm, which can be readily amplified by Er-doped-fiber amplifiers. This scheme may provide a new route to a fiber-laser-based CEO-phase-stabilized source.

(a) The optical spectrum of the mode-locked Yb-fiber laser; inset: the autocorrelation trace of the pulses; (b) The CR wavelength depends on the ZDWLs of the PCFs, the contribution of nonlinearity to phase-matching condition pushes the CR to a shorter wavelength as the peak power of the seeding pulse increases; (c) Optical spectrum after the 23-mm PCF, strong CR component is selectively generated at 615 nm; (d) Optical spectrum of the DF at ~1530 nm.
