Abstract

We report a few-cycle, super-octave, polycrystalline Cr:ZnS laser system with 4 W power at 78 MHz repetition rate, where all of the necessary optical signals for the measurement of the carrier–envelope offset frequency are generated intrinsically.

Figures (3)

Fig. 1.
Fig. 1. Laser setup. EDFL pump beam is focused in 9 mm Cr:ZnS sample with a lens L1 (60μm 1/e2 intensity diameter). Seed pulses are pre-shaped with a lens L2, pre-chirped with GDD 800fs2, superimposed with the pump beam and focused with a curved mirror DM into 170μm spot. Output pulses are collimated and steered with gold-coated mirrors (Au). The setup is enclosed in a dust-tight case and purged with dry air. The seed laser is equipped with a low-noise single-frequency EDFL pump.
Fig. 2.
Fig. 2. (a) Overall spectrum obtained by the stitching of seven spectra (shown by different colors). The spectra were acquired with SP2500 and SP2150 Acton monochromators using appropriate gratings, photodetectors, and spectral filters. Error bars around the MIR spectra correspond to averaging of three sets of data acquired during several hours. (b) Autocorrelation (AC) of MIR pulses. Ripples in the AC are due to 3f background; see main text. (c) Photo of the Cr:ZnS gain element and output MIR beam profile at 4.1 W power.
Fig. 3.
Fig. 3. (a) Photo of the visible-to-near IR part of the spectrum dispersed on a screen by a BK7 prism. Color letters show locations of the optical harmonics of the fundamental MIR. Vertical arrows show regions of spectral overlap (RSO) between the adjacent harmonics that were used to detect the interference beats at fCEO. (b) RF spectrum of the 2f-3f beating; RSO at about 875 nm is separated by a prism. (c) RF spectrum of the 3f-4f beating; RSO at 633 nm is separated by a band-pass filter with 3 nm bandwidth.
