Abstract

We propose and demonstrate a simple and promising method for stabilizing the carrier-envelope phase (CEP) of a high-energy ultrashort pulse laser operating at a low repetition rate. The method was successfully applied to a Ti:sapphire laser operating at 10 Hz with 400 mJ pulse energy and 25 fs pulse duration (16 TW). The laser system consists of a 1 kHz front-end preamplifier and a 10 Hz back-end power amplifier. By sampling a 500 Hz reference pulse from a 1 kHz seed pulse, the measured single-shot CEP noise of a 10 Hz amplified pulse is stabilized to 670 mrad rms. Our proposed CEP stabilization concept can be applied to single-shot ultrahigh-power lasers, such as a petawatt laser system.
