Abstract

Supercontinuum pulses covering the range from 1100 to 1700 nm with energies >1.0mJ and excellent beam quality are generated via nonlinear spectral broadening of Cr:forsterite (1240 nm, 110 fs) pulses in pressurized molecular nitrogen. Our spectra, which extend over more than half an octave, offer an attractive alternative to intense few-cycle pulse synthesis in the 1–2 μm range and lend themselves as an important add-on to Cr:forsterite laser technologies.
