Abstract

We demonstrate pulse shortening of 1-ps Yb:YAG thin-disk regenerative amplifier to 500 fs by cross-polarized wave generation (XPW) in a 6 mm BaF2 crystal. The process is self-compressed and has 8.5% conversion efficiency corresponding to 18 µJ energy. Our theoretical and experimental investigation shows that the factor of 3 spectral broadening and pulse shortening in ps-XPW-generation only happens in unsaturated regime. We demonstrate that the initial spectral chirp affects the spectral broadening and pulse shortening of XPW pulses.

Fig. 3
Fig. 3 Linearly polarized input pulses from a Yb:YAG, thin-disk amplifier are focused to a 6-mm-thick BaF2 to generate cross-polarized waves (XPW). XPW pulses are separated from input pulses using a thin-film polarizer (TFP) and later compressed to their Fourier transform limit in a pair of dielectric gratings. For the case of the cascaded XPW stages, explained in the main text, the XPM beam is focused one more time into a 6 mm BaF2 crystal. Another TFP is employed to separate the generated from the incident pulse.
