Abstract

We have compressed the output from a β-barium borate noncollinear optical parametric amplifier to 7fs pulse durations, using a micromachined deformable mirror with an efficient search algorithm. This compression method allows phase compensation of both material and gain dispersion, which produces an optimized wavelength-tunable pulse shape for ultrahigh-resolution time-domain spectroscopy.
