Abstract

We present a 100 kHz, sub-20 fs optical parametric chirped-pulse amplifier (OPCPA) system delivering 88.6 W average power at a center wavelength of 800 nm. The seed pulses are derived from the pump laser via white-light continuum generation and are amplified in three non-collinear OPCPA stages. The final two high-power stages are pumped with a 661 W Yb:YAG InnoSlab amplifier. A simple and robust design is used for the OPCPA system to avoid thermal effects and enhance long-term stability, resulting in excellent beam quality and high conversion efficiency. To the best of our knowledge, this is the highest average power OPCPA system reported to date.
