Abstract

We demonstrate a chirped-pulse amplification system that simultaneously amplifies two pulses from a dual-wavelength oscillator in a single regenerative amplifier. The two wavelengths can be tuned from 800 to 890 nm. The total energy of 1.5 mJ can be variably split between the two pulses. The pulses are 150 fs in duration and have 60-fs timing jitter.
