Abstract

We present a 9GW peak power, three-cycle, 2.2μm optical parametric chirped-pulse amplification source with 1.5% rms energy and 150mrad carrier envelope phase fluctuations. These characteristics, in addition to excellent beam, wavefront, and pulse quality, make the source suitable for long-wavelength-driven high-harmonic generation. High stability is achieved by careful optimization of superfluorescence suppression, enabling energy scaling.
