Abstract

An ultrafast three-dimensional readout of coherent optical-phonon oscillations from a diamond film is demonstrated using temporally and spectrally shaped ultrashort laser pulses, delivered by a compact, oscillator-only laser system. This system integrates a long-cavity ytterbium-fiber-laser-pumped 30fs Cr:forsterite oscillator with a photonic-crystal-fiber soliton frequency shifter and a periodically poled lithium niobate spectrum compressor, providing coherent Raman excitation and time-delayed interrogation of optical phonons in diamond at a 20MHz repetition rate with a submicrometer spatial resolution.
