We present experimental results on the optical parametric chirped pulse amplification and compression of femtosecond pulses. Chirped pulses with spectral width 70 nm were amplified in a three-stage optical parametric amplifier system up to 35 J. The measured amplified pulsewidth after compression was 85 fs indicating a potential peak power of over 0.35 PW.
