Abstract

We demonstrate the generation of 100-μJ-level multicolored femtosecond pulses based on a single-stage cascaded four-wave mixing (CFWM) process in a thin glass plate by using cylinder lenses. The generated high-energy CFWM signals can shift the central wavelength and have well-enhanced temporal contrast because of the third-order nonlinear process. They are innovatively used as clean sampling pulses of a cross-correlator for single-shot temporal contrast measurement. With a simple homemade setup, the proof-of-principle experimental results demonstrate the single-shot cross-correlator with dynamic range of 1010, temporal resolution of about 160 fs and temporal window of 50 ps. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first demonstration in which both the dynamic range and the temporal resolution of a single-shot temporal contrast measurement are comparable to those of a commercial delay-scanning cross-correlator.

Figures (8)

Fig. 1
Fig. 1 Schematic representation of the experimental setup for CFWM. DM is the dichroic mirror. CL1 and CL2 are two cylindrical lenses. GP is a glass plate wedge.
Fig. 2
Fig. 2 The generation of CFWM signals. (a) Photograph of the generated signals. The spots in the dashed rectangle are input beams. The insert shows the beam profiles of the first-order FDC signal. (b) Spectra of the generated signals (solid lines) and the input beams (dashed lines). (c) Power stability of first-order FDC signal. (d) Central wavelength tunability of the first-order FDC signal.
Fig. 3
Fig. 3 Temporal contrast curves of the input pulse (red dashed line) and the first-order FDC signal (blue solid line).
Fig. 4
Fig. 4 The time-to-space encoding for a single-shot cross-correlator.
Fig. 5
Fig. 5 Schematic representation of the experimental setup in single-shot temporal contrast measurement. BS denotes the beam splitter. BE1 and BE2 are beam expanders. CCM1 and CCM2 are concave cylindrical mirrors. DF is a strip-shaped density filter. CW is a coated wedge. L1 and L2 are 4f imaging lenses. F is a short-pass filter with a cutoff at 700 nm. Iris1 and Iris2 are two home-made soft-edge irises.
Fig. 6
Fig. 6 Intensity of the main pulse of the correlator signal relative to the time delay between the sampling and test pulses.
Fig. 7
Fig. 7 Original single-shot and replica correlator signals on the sCMOS detector. (a) Original signal, where the main pulse (I) is attenuated by a strip-shaped density filter. (b) Replica of the original signal provided by a coated wedge.
Fig. 8
Fig. 8 (a) Temporal contrast results of a Ti: sapphire regenerative amplifier measured by using the Sequoia (the orange line) and our single-shot equipment with two shots of measurement (the blue dotted line). At the bottom of the graph, three lines are presented to show the magnitude of noise from SHG signals. The red line depicts the result when the test pulse is blocked. The green line is the result when the sampling pulse is blocked. The solid blue line is the background signal (when both are blocked) of the sCMOS. (b) Correlation traces by the Sequoia and our equipment with a linear plot of intensity (or enlargement of the main pulse).
