Abstract

Pulses from an optical parametric amplifier in the visible are compressed to sub-10-fs duration by a delay line made exclusively from chirped dielectric mirrors. We employ what we believe are the first ultrabroadband visible chirped mirrors, which provide negative group-delay dispersion up to the blue-green spectral region. The setup is compact and reliable, and we used it to observe, for what is to our knowledge the first time in organic molecules, coherent oscillations with periods as short as 16 fs.
