Abstract

We report on a Yb:YAG Innoslab laser amplifier system for generation of subpicsecond high energy pump pulses for optical parametric chirped pulse amplification (OPCPA) at high repetition rates. Pulse energies of up to 20mJ (at 12.5kHz) and repetition rates of up to 100kHz were attained with pulse durations of 830fs and average power in excess of 200W. We further investigate the possibility to use subpicosecond pulses to derive a stable continuum in a YAG crystal for OPCPA seeding.

(a) Input (dotted curve) and output (solid curve) pulse spectrum of the Innoslab amplifier. (b) Beam profile measurement ( M x 2 = 1.1 , M y 2 = 1.4 ). (c) Autocorrelation measurement (black curve) and Gaussian fit (red curve) of the compressed 1030 nm pulses. The pulse duration corresponds to 830 fs assuming a Gaussian temporal distribution.

(a) Spatial beam profile (inset) and energy stability of a continuum generated in an undoped YAG crystal by 10 μJ pulses. (b) Spectral stability over 10 min (logarithmic scale). (c) Spectrum of the YAG continuum (shaded gray) and spectrum of the pulses amplified in the OPCPA stage (red curve). The inset shows the AC trace of the compressed OPCPA pulses with τ AC = 35 fs , corresponding to 24 fs pulse duration.
