Abstract

We demonstrate an optical parametric chirped-pulse amplifier producing infrared 20fs (3-optical-cycle) pulses with a stable carrier-envelope phase. The amplifier is seeded with self-phase-stabilized pulses obtained by optical rectification of the output of an ultrabroadband Ti:sapphire oscillator. Energies of 80μJ with a well-suppressed background of parametric superfluorescence and up to 400μJ with a superfluorescence background are obtained from a two-stage parametric amplifier based on periodically poled LiNbO3 and LiTaO3 crystals. The parametric amplifier is pumped by an optically synchronized 1kHz, 30ps, 1053nm Nd:YLF amplifier seeded by the same Ti:sapphire oscillator.

Summary of spectral properties of the IR OPCPA. Solid curve, amplified signal spectrum after the second OPA stage; dashed curve, spectrum of the seed pulse generated by difference-frequency mixing; dotted curve, superfluorescence spectrum in a 3 mm thick PPLN. Inset, electric field of the pulse calculated for the solid curve assuming ideal pulse compression.
