Abstract

A single-cycle (3 fs) 100 petawatt laser pulse is obtained theoretically by dramatically increasing the spectrum, accordingly reducing the pulse duration, of the optical parametric chirped pulse amplification (OPCPA) with a new designed wide-angle non-collinear OPCPA (WNOPCPA). While comparing with two other recent popular methods of the energy-further-increased single-beam femtosecond petawatt laser and the spatiotemporally coherent combination of multiple-beam femtosecond petawatt lasers, we believe that the proposed method is another choice for sub-exawatt lasers.
