"Sub-20 fs µJ-energy pulses tunable down to the near-UV from a 1 MHz Yb-fiber laser system"

Opt. Lett. 39, 2588 - 2591 (2014).


Abstract:
Optical parametric amplifiers render widely tunable ultrashort pulses, but for full spectral coverage, complex mixing schemes are needed. In particular, the blue and near-UV part of the spectrum is not directly reached with the 800 nm pump from Ti:sapphire systems or the 1030 nm pump of Yb-based lasers. We combine third harmonic pumping at 343 nm with seeding by a second harmonic (SH) pumped continuum to tune a noncollinear optical parametric amplifier down to 395 nm. Together with a SH pumped branch, the full range from 395 to 970 nm is covered with 20 fs pulse length or less. Pulse energies up to the µJ-level with an average power of up to 200 mW at 200 kHz and 480 mW at 1 MHz are achieved. With additional frequency doubling, the full range down to 210 nm is reached without gap. Two-photon absorption in the amplifier crystal is discussed as the critical issue in UV-pumped systems.
