Abstract

Wavelength-tunable multicolored femtosecond laser pulses were generated simultaneously through cascade four-wave mixing in a fused-silica glass plate using two crossing femtosecond laser beams. The wavelength of the sidebands can be continuously tuned from UV to IR. The pulse duration, spatial mode, spectrum, and energy stability of the sidebands indicated that they were good enough for various multicolor femtosecond laser experiments. As many as 15 spectral upshifted pulses and 2 spectral downshifted pulses were obtained with a spectral bandwidth broader than 1.8 octaves.
