Abstract

Efficient pulse post-compression in a standard hollow-core fiber (HCF) device is proposed, resulting in the routine generation of 4.8 fs, 1.6 mJ pulses with hour-long CEP control from 3.1mJ input pulses. The employed laser system produces 3.1 mJ, ∼25 fs, 1 kHz, carrier-envelope phase (CEP) stable pulses [1]. The compressor device is a 1m-long, 250 µm inner diameter HCF filled with a static pressure of Helium (∼2 bars). The intrinsic throughput of the HCF without gas is 80%.
