Abstract

We demonstrate the direct generation of 12fs pulses from a Ti:sapphire regenerative amplifier system at a 1kHz repetition rate utilizing properly designed broadband components for chirped-pulse amplification. Optimized designs of a regenerative amplifier with a multilayer gain-narrowing compensator and an adaptive dispersion compensator with a spatial light modulator contribute to the shorter pulse amplification.
