Abstract

Carrier-envelope (CE) phase-stabilized sub-two-cycle pulses are generated from a 500MHz compact prismless octave-spanning laser without extracavity nonlinear optical processes distorting the laser output. The necessary f and 2f spectral components are generated intracavity and coupled out independently from the main pulse through specially designed cavity mirrors, resulting in a 55dB CE beat note (100kHz resolution bandwidth). The in-loop CE phase error (integrated from 2.5mHz to 10MHz) is 67mrad, equivalent to a timing jitter between carrier and envelope of 28 as at 790nm.
