Abstract

We report on design, production and characterization of an extremely broadband multilayer beamsplitter, covering wavelength range from 0.67 – 2.6 µm. The group delay dispersion has small oscillations in the above mentioned working range. We used a new algorithm with floating constants allowing us to obtain a smooth and near constant GDD. The optical element based on the beamsplitter is used for dividing a low-energy super-octave spectrum into several sub-spectral regions which are later amplified and coherently combined.

Figures (5)

Fig. 1
Fig. 1 Set up of a two-channel OPCPA system seeded and pumped by 20 mJ, 1-ps Yb:YAG thin-disk regenerative amplifier [9]. A part of its output is used for generating a phase-stable multi-octave supercontinuum signal, which is split into two channels by using the BS. The two channels are pumped by second-harmonic and the fundamental pulses of the Yb:YAG regenerative amplifier output. Each channel supports few-cycle pulses. By coherently combining the two few-cycle channels using a broadband beam combiner, non-sinusoidal, multi-octave light transients spanning from 0.67−2.6 μm can be generated.
