Abstract

We report a method for filtering out the noises produced in optical parametric chirped-pulse amplifiers by dressing the seed beam with spatial chirp. After dechirping the amplified signal with a compressor, the noises experience a spatiotemporal coupling, making themselves highly distinguishable from the compressed signal in space, and hence supporting noise filtering effectively and expediently in the spatial domain, which would otherwise not be possible. Numerical simulations performed for the proposed method show the capabilities of an order of magnitude reduction in the noise energy and several orders of magnitude enhancement in the temporal contrast.

(a) Spectrums of the seed (Δω=30THz) and amplified signal, as well as its spectral phase (blue line); (b) amplified signal bandwidth (ΔωG) in the pump case of flattop in time and Gaussian in space, relative to that (ΔωF) in the pump case of flattop in both time and space; (c), (d), (e), (f) calculated signal for the ultra-broadband case (Δω=200THz) with crystal length of 5 mm and pump intensity of 15GW/cm2: (c) the spectrum and its phase; (d) the compressed and Fourier-limited pulses; (e) the beam profile and its phase; (f) the far-field beam and diffraction-limited one.
