Abstract

We demonstrate experimentally for the first time a ~40-µJ two-octave-wide passively carrier-envelope phase (CEP)-stable parametric front-end for seeding an ytterbium (Yb)-pump-based, few-optical-cycle, high-energy optical parametric waveform synthesizer. The system includes a CEP-stable white-light continuum and two-channel optical parametric chirped pulse amplifiers (OPCPAs) in the near- and mid-infrared spectral regions spanning altogether a two-octave-wide spectrum driven by a regenerative amplifier. The output pulses are compressed and fully characterized to demonstrate the well-behaved spectral phase of this seed source.

Fig. 1
Fig. 1 (a) Block diagram of the CEP-stable white-light source, spectra of signal and idler of OPA2 (b) and WLC2 (c). p: Pump, s: Signal, and i: Idler. 650-µJ compressed pulses from the Yb:KYW regenerative amplifier are used to generate WLC1 and to pump two OPAs (OPA1 and OPA2). The generated passively CEP-stable idler is used to pump WLC2. The generated WLC spectrum is shown between 510 and 1600 nm.
Fig. 2
Fig. 2 f-2f interferograms confirming CEP stability of the WLC in the range 960-990 nm averaged over 4 pulses over 15 minutes (a) and 1000 pulses over ~12 hours, demonstrating long-term stability (c). Extracted CEP fluctuations over 15 minutes (b) and ~12 hours (d). In both cases, the beat signal is obtained between the remaining idler of OPA2 and WLC2 [23].
Fig. 3
Fig. 3 (a) Block diagram of the modified CEP-stable seed source. Spectra of signal and idler of OPA2, and second harmonic of the idler (SHG1) (b). p: Pump, s: Signal, and i: Idler. (c) Pulse energy measurement of OPA2 at the signal and WLC2 in the NIR spectral region over 24 hours (one day-and-night temperature cycle of the laboratory).
Fig. 4
Fig. 4 (a) Pulse-to-pulse energy fluctuations (RMS) of WLC2 generated inside YAG crystals with different thicknesses in NIR and MIR regions for two focusing conditions. (b) The spectra of WLC2 in NIR and MIR spectral regions. The spectra are measured by using two different spectrometers and normalized independently. The WLC2 driver centered at 1.23 µm is eliminated by using several band-pass filters.
Fig. 5
Fig. 5 Block diagram of the two-channel OPCPA chain. The CEP-stable WLC (CEP Seed) is seeding the two OPCPA channels in the NIR and MIR spectral ranges, NOPA1-2 and DOPA1-3 respectively. The seed is separated into the channels via a dichroic mirror (DM). The corresponding pumps are represented with the green and red lines, respectively.

Fig. 7 (a) Spectra of the first OPA stages for in NIR (NOPA1) and MIR (DOPA1) and corresponding pulse energies. (b) Spectra of the pulses after the second (NOPA2, DOPA2) and third stages (DOPA3). Insets in both figures show the corresponding near-field images of the OPCPA outputs in the NIR.
Fig. 8
Fig. 8 Estimated temporal intensity profile of synthesized pulses by assuming a flat spectral phase for the DOPA-to-NOPA pulse-energy ratios of 0.73 (a) and 0.10 (b). The central peak of the pulse has 2-fs pulse duration (FWHM), while the duration is close to 8.5 fs including the wings for both pulse-energy ratios.
