Abstract

We demonstrate a chirped dielectric multilayer mirror (CM) with controlled reflectivity and dispersion in the wavelength range 760–840 nm. It exhibits a reflectivity of >99.9% and a mean group delay dispersion (GDD) of about -30 fs2 with a theoretical GDD ripple of less than 0.5 fs2 in the working spectral range. Deviations of the measured GDD from the calculated one are restricted to less than ± 3 fs2, limited by our measurement system. Simulations reveal that a dispersive delay line composed of 120 bounces off these mirrors introduces negligible distortion to a femtosecond pulse and largely preserves its contrast. The mirrors constitute an ideal tool for precision intracavity or extracavity dispersion control in the range of several thousand fs2, particularly if pulses with high contrast are to be generated.

Physical thicknesses of the layers of the optimized CM. H denotes the high-refractive-index material Ta2O5 (nH=2.15 at 500 nm) and L stands for low-refractive-index material SiO2 (nL=1.48 at 500 nm).

The transmission spectrum (left) and GDD (right) of the realized chirped mirror; blue curves: measured, red curves: target.

Fig. 3.
Fig. 3.

Intensity profiles of a bandwidth-limited Gaussian model pulse (red lines) and its replica propagated through a hypothetical delay line incorporating 120 bounces off the designed CMs with their nominal GDD and TOD removed (blue lines) on a logarithmic (left) and a linear (right) scale. The amplitude of the pulse transmitted through the delay line is not normalized but can be directly compared with that of the input pulse, the temporal shift being artificial for better visibility.

Left: cavity configuration of the 5-MHz Ti:sapphire CPO. Insert: the beam spots on the CMs forming the delay line. All radii are given in mm. SBR: saturable Bragg reflector; FS: fused silica prisms for fine tuning intracavity GDD, OC: output coupler. Right: the autocorrelation trace of the generated pulses compressed by another set of (different) chirped mirrors external to the cavity (not shown). Insert: the generated spectrum.
