Abstract

We demonstrate efficient frequency tripling of 1057-chirped pulses, using adapted chirping and thick KDP crystals. These millijoules broadband pulses at 352  nm have been compressed to 220-fs duration by use of a UV grating-pair compressor. The technique is scalable to kilojoule petatwatt lasers.
