Abstract

It is demonstrated that the carrier-envelope (CE) phase of pulses from a high power ultrafast laser system with a grating-based stretcher and compressor can be stabilized to a root mean square (rms) value of 180 mrad over almost 2 hours, excluding a brief re-locking period. The stabilization was accomplished via feedback control of the stretcher grating separation in the stretcher. It shows that the long term CE phase stability of a grating based chirped pulse amplification system can be as good as that of lasers using a glass-block stretcher and a prism pair compressor. Moreover, by adjusting the grating separation to preset values, the relative CE phase could be locked to an arbitrary value in the range of 2π. This method is better than using a pair of wedge plates to adjust the phase after a hollow-core fiber compressor. The CE phase stabilization after a hollow-core fiber compressor was confirmed by a CE-phase meter based on the measurement of the left-to-right asymmetry of electrons produced by above-threshold ionization.

The Kansas Light Source (KLS) CE phase controlled femtosecond laser system. The oscillator CE phase offset frequency f 0 is stabilized by feedback controlling the acoustooptic modulator (AOM). Pulses with the same CE phase are selected by the Pockels cell (PC) and sent to the CPA amplifier. The error signal from the collinear f-to-2f interferometer is used to adjust the effective separation of two gratings G1 and G2 in the stretcher to stabilize the CE phase of the amplified pulses.
