Abstract

We report on the development and manufacturing of two different types of high-dispersive mirrors (HDM). One of them provides a record value for the group delay dispersion (GDD) of −4000 fs2 and covers the wavelength range of 1027-1033 nm, whereas the other one provides −3000 fs2 over the wavelength range of 1020-1040 nm. Both of the fabricated mirrors exhibit a reflectance of >99.9% and are well suited for intracavity applications. Mirrors of the second type have been successfully employed in a Kerr-lens mode-locked Yb:YAG thin-disk oscillator for the generation of 200-fs pulses with multi-10-W average power.

The theoretical reflectance (magenta) and GDD (blue) of HDM1. The measured point of reflectance (black cross) was obtained by using a loss-meter (Novawave8based on the ring-down technique. The measurement of GDD (red crosses) has been performed with a white light interferometer [38].

The theoretical reflectance (magenta) and GDD (blue) of HDM2. The measured point of reflectance (black cross) was obtained by using loss-meter (Novawave) based on the ring-down technique. The measurement of GDD (red crosses) has been performed with a white light interferometer.

Fig. 3

Pulse transmission analysis of HDM2. Intensity profiles of a bandwidth-limited Gaussian pulse (blue lines) and its replica, propagated through a hypothetical delay line made up of 10 bounces off the designed HDM2 with their nominal GDD and TOD removed (red lines) on a linear scale. Inset (below) the same intensity profile on a logarithmic scale. The amplitude of the pulse transmitted through the delay line is not normalized but can be directly compared to that of the input pulse, the temporal shift is artificial for better visibility. The theoretical spectrum is shown on the upper inset.
