Abstract

A conceptual design of a high power, ultrabroadband optical parametric chirped-pulse amplifier (OPCPA) was carried out comparing nonlinear crystals (LBO and BBO) for 810 nm centered, sub-7.0 fs pulses with energies above 1 mJ. These amplifiers are only possible with a parallel development of kilowatt-level OPCPA-pump amplifiers. It is therefore important to know good strategies to use the available OPCPA-pump energy efficiently. Numerical simulations, including self- and cross-phase modulation, were used to investigate the critical parameters to achieve sufficient spectral and spatial quality. At high output powers, thermal absorption in the nonlinear crystals starts to degrade the output beam quality. Strategies to minimize thermal effects and limits to the maximum average power are discussed.

Influence of spatial distortions in the output of the signal beam on a distorted input pump beam, demonstrated on the second LBO stage. (a) Input pump near-field intensity profile P(2). (b) Output signal near-field intensity profile S(2). All other parameters for the simulation of the second stage were the same as for the results in Fig. 4.

Optical transmission in dependence on wavelength [17], and spectra of signal and idler pulses at the end of the second stage for both LBO (a) and BBO (b).

A 2 dimension (x,z) simulation of the change of temperature profile across the crystal of the second stage of the OPCPA for LBO. The laser passes along the z-axis (arbitrary units), with one transverse direction x (arbitrary units). At the edge of the crystal along the x-axis is assumed to have an idealized heat sink.

Tables Icon

Table 1 Properties of nonlinear crystals: deff effective nonlinear optical coefficient, ρ walk-off angle, TT temperature tolerance, AT angular tolerance, α515 nm absorption coefficients at 515 nm, and κ̄ thermal conductivity (averaged over the crystal axes). Values given for λpump = 515 nm and λsignal = 800 nm. These values are taken from [16, 17]. (Note: Critical for this work are the values of α515, which can greatly vary in the literature [16]. The values given in the table are considered worst-case upper limits.)

Table 2 OPCPA laser pulse parameters for the pump and signal at various positions (see Fig. 1). Pulse durations τ and widths D are characterized using FWHM. Between stages 1 and 2, and between 2 and 3, the signal was spatially expanded 1:8 / 1:2 for LBO and 1:10 / 1:2 for BBO, respectively; additionally group dispersion delay of −100 fs2 for LBO and −300 fs2 for BBO was added temporally to the signal between stages 1 and 2.

Table 3 Starting values and cumulative changes of the signal spectral phase to the group delay dispersion (GDD) (second-order dispersion), third-order dispersion (TOD) and fourth-order dispersion (FOD). ΔDisp. is the change in phase only due to dispersion within the crystal; ΔOPA is the change when optical parametric amplification is added; and, ΔPM is the change when self- and cross-phase modulation is added to the simulation. Additionally, −100 fs2 GDD was added between stages 1 and 2 using a chirped mirror (CM).
