Abstract

Spectra extending from 600 to 1200  nm have been generated from a Kerr-lens mode-locked Ti:sapphire laser producing 5-fs pulses. Specially designed double-chirped mirror pairs provide broadband controlled dispersion, and a second intracavity focus in a glass plate provides additional spectral broadening. These spectra are to our knowledge the broadest ever generated directly from a laser oscillator.

Fig. 1
Fig. 1

Setup of the double-Z cavity. Two prisms and eight bounces on DCMP’s provide flat dispersion. A second focus, in a BK7 plate (P), generates significantly more spectrum. L’s, lenses; other abbreviations defined in text.

Fig. 2
Fig. 2

Second-order dispersion map of the double-Z cavity. The positive dispersion of the laser crystal D1 and the glass plate D2 is balanced by the DCMP’s and the prisms. In the middle of the dispersion cells, the pulse is chirp free. Additionally, the pulse is modified by SPM in the crystal and the plate with coefficients δ1 and δ2, respectively.

Fig. 3

Output power spectrum on a logarithmic and on a linear scale. The spectrum extends over more than 1  octave.

Fig. 4
Fig. 4

Measured and reconstructed IAC of the pulse. A phase-retrieval algorithm reveals a pulse width of 5  fs. The reconstructed IAC fits perfectly and is not distinguishable. The reconstructed electric field is displayed in the inset. SH, second harmonic.
