Abstract

In this Letter, we report the demonstration of the coherent beam combining (CBC) of two-beam femtosecond laser pulses based on chirped-pulse amplification (CPA). To the best of our knowledge, this is the first experimental realization of coherent combination pulses from Ti:sapphire CPA systems. In this experiment, the combined laser beams operate at a repetition rate of 1 Hz, and a reference laser is introduced to detect the phase error between the sub-beams. Finally, we realize a coherent combining efficiency of 90% which verified the feasibility for CPA CBC. Moreover, the influence of the amplification process on CBC is studied.
