Abstract

Supercontinuum generation in a solid-state medium was investigated experimentally. A continuum covering 460 to 950 nm was obtained when 0.8 mJ/30 fs Ti:sapphire laser pulses were applied to seven thin fused silica plates at a 1 kHz repetition rate. The primary processes responsible for spectral broadening were self-phase modulation (SPM) and self-steepening, while SPM and self-focusing were balanced to optimize the spectral broadening and suppress the multiphoton process. The output was compressed to a 5.4 fs and a 0.68 mJ pulse, corresponding to two optical cycles and 0.13 TW of peak power.

Fig. 1.

Experimental setup for supercontinuum generation in fused silica plates and pulse compression. The telescope contained two fused silica lenses, a plano–convex with f = 300    mm and a plano–concave with f = 100    mm separated by 200 mm; the focusing lens (L) was f = 2000    mm . CM, concave silver mirror, to collimate the output beam ( f = 1000    mm ). The chirped mirrors were from FEMTOLASERS (part# BBCOMP).

Supercontinuum after the laser beam propagated through seven fused silica thin plates. Inset: the output beam profile taken at the collimating mirror; the center peak was saturated to show the structures of the rings.

Fig. 3.
Fig. 3.

Spectra taken after each fused silica plate in a log scale. The zeroth one was the input spectrum.

Fig. 4.
Fig. 4.

Pulse envelopes retrieved from FROG traces taken after each fused silica plate. The zeroth one was the input. The energy of each pulse was normalized to the input.

Fig. 5.

Characterization of the 5.4 fs pulse compressed from the supercontinuum by TG-FROG. (a), (b) Measured and reconstructed FROG traces. (c) Retrieved spectrum (solid red line), phase (dashed line), and the spectrum taken at the entrance of the FROG (solid black line). (d) Retrieved pulse envelope. The retrieval error was 0.008.
