Abstract

In this paper we present a self-referenced interferometric single-shot measurement technique that we use to evaluate the longitudinal chromatism compensation made by a diffractive lens corrector. A diffractive lens with a delay of 1 ps is qualified for a 60 mm beam aperture. This corrector was implemented on the Alisé Nd:glass power chain. We qualify the corrector and the Alisé power chain chromatism, demonstrating the potential of this measuring principle as well as the interest of diffractive lenses to correct longitudinal chromatism of petawatt-class lasers.

Fig. 1.

Description of various characteristic quantities of the chromatism brought by a lens. Δ is the optical path length difference and ΔΦ is the phase difference on the border of the pupil h and for a spectral bandwidth Δλ=λ+-λ-. ΔZ is the defocusing for the same spectral bandwidth and Td the time delay between centre and border of the pupil. Both approaches depict the same chromatism phenomenon.

Fig. 2.

Effect of longitudinal chromatism on peak intensity on target for the PETAL facility. Left: with longitudinal chromatism, Right: without longitudinal chromatism, Top: focal spot radius evolution versus time. Bottom: central focal spot intensity versus time.

The CROCO system in front of the M2 (L-turn) mirror. Ldiff is the diffractive lens, Ldiv is the diverging lens. The (Ldiff-Ldiv) ensemble has a null power.

Spectral interferences observed on the spectrograph. Left: regular fringes in the case of constant delay between the two replicas. Right: variation of the fringes frequency in the case of chromatic beam.

Experimental interference pattern with the classical refractive lens. The interference period seems to be quasi-constant on the whole image. The horizontal axis is the wavelength axis in CCD pixel numbers. The vertical axis is the transverse coordinate axis along the spectrograph slit in CCD pixel numbers.

Fig. 10.
Fig. 10.

Experimental interference pattern with the diffractive lens. A variation of the interference period is clearly observable between the top and the bottom of the image. The horizontal axis is the wavelength axis in CCD pixel numbers. The vertical axis is the transverse coordinate axis along the spectrograph slit in CCD pixel numbers.

Fig. 11.
Fig. 11.

Differences of the Fourier signals in the case of a perfect (top) and of a chromatic (bottom) beam. Due to the variation of the delay along the Y axis in the case of a chromatic beam, the satellite positions are not constant.

Fig. 12.
Fig. 12.

Fourier transform of the interference pattern in the case of the refractive lens. A small variation of the satellite positions appears due to the chromatism accumulated in the Alisé chain, the refractive lens and in the diagnostic lenses. The horizontal axis is the delay axis in CCD pixel numbers. The vertical axis is the transverse coordinate axis along the spectrograph slit in CCD pixel numbers.

Fig. 13.
Fig. 13.

Fourier transform of the interference pattern in the case of the diffractive lens. A strong variation of the satellite positions appears due to the chromatic aberrations of the diffractive lens. The horizontal axis is the delay axis in CCD pixel numbers. The vertical axis is the transverse coordinate axis along the spectrograph slit in CCD pixel numbers.
