Abstract

Ultrabroadband parametric amplification of a white-light continuum in the near IR (100THz, 1.22.4μm) is demonstrated in BiB3O6 pumped by 45fs long pulses at 800nm at a repetition rate of 1kHz. The energy obtained with a 5mm thick crystal reached 50μJ, corresponding to external conversion efficiency of 20%.
