Abstract

By using two very different seed pulses we demonstrate that the spatiotemporal gain properties of a χ(2) optical parametric amplifier can be exploited as an efficient conical reshaping mechanism leading to the generation and amplification of a pulsed Bessel beam.

(a) Phase-matching curves for a type I BBO crystal pumped by a 405 nm pulse. The dashed curve corresponds to the experimental conditions and the circled section indicates the experimentally generated PBB; (b) group velocity of the phase-matched frequency components for the same conditions as in (a). Dots highlight the carrier frequencies for which the radiation group velocity is equal to that of the pump.

Fig. 2

Near-field intensity distribution of the reshaped and amplified radiation in the case of strongly focused (Gaussian) seed pulse. Inset, near-field intensity profile of the input seed measured at the input facet of the crystal.

Fig. 3
Fig. 3

Spatiotemporal power spectra for (a) the BXW input seed and (b) the PBB reshaped and amplified pulses. Different colors correspond to different intensities of the power spectra, represented as a function of temporal and spatial frequency on the horizontal and vertical axis, respectively. In the inset, the seeding condition is sketched and compared with the phase-matching condition of the experiment.
