Abstract

The generation of high average power, carrier-envelope phase (CEP) stable, near-single-cycle pulses at a repetition rate of 100 kHz is demonstrated using an all solid-state setup. By exploiting self-phase modulation in thin quartz plates and air, the spectrum of intense pulses from a high-power, high repetition rate non-collinear optical parametric chirped pulse amplifier (NOPCPA) is extended to beyond one octave, and pulse compression down to 3.7 fs is achieved. The octave-spanning spectrum furthermore allows performing straightforward f-to-2f interferometry by frequency-doubling the long-wavelength part of the spectrum. Excellent CEP-stability is demonstrated for extended periods of time. A full spatio-spectral characterization of the compressed pulses shows only minor asymmetries between the two perpendicular beam axes. We believe that the completed system represents the first laser system satisfying all requirements for performing high repetition rate attosecond pump-probe experiments with fully correlated detection of all ions and electrons produced in the experiment.

Figures (8)

Fig. 1
Fig. 1 Experimental setup: Two thin plates of quartz placed around the focal plane of the loosely focused beam from the high power NOPCPA extend the pulse spectrum to more than a full octave. Compression is achieved with chirped mirrors and thin fused silica wedges. The inset shows a photograph of the resulting beam with octave-spanning spectrum.
Fig. 2
Fig. 2 Output spectra for a different number of plates in (a) linear and (b) logarithmic scale. When no plates are present the spectrum is already broadened compared to the spectrum produced in the NOPCPA due to the interaction of the intense pulses with air. With two 50 µm-thick quartz plates the spectrum extends well beyond a full octave.
