Abstract

Using self-phase modulation in a hollow-core fiber filled with xenon, we were able to produce 2.3μJ laser pulses with a duration of 10.9fs at a repetition rate of up to 100kHz. We started with 45fs, 4.4μJ, 800nm pulses generated by a Coherent RegA Ti:sapphire regenerative amplifier system, then spectrally broadened the 30nm bandwidth to more than 100nm. Dispersion compensation was achieved with two pairs of chirped mirrors. This is believed to be the first time this type of compression was achieved at a repetition rate as high as 100kHz. This brings the advantages of few-cycle laser pulses to experiments that require high-repetition-rate, low-energy laser systems, for example, coincidence experiments.
