Abstract

Broadband optical parametric amplification in the IR region has reached a new milestone through the use of a non-collinear Frequency domain Optical Parametric Amplification system. We report a laser source delivering 11.6 fs pulses with 30 mJ of energy at a central wavelength of 1.8 μm at 10 Hz repetition rate corresponding to a peak power of 2.5 TW. The peak power scaling is accompanied by a pulse shortening of about 20% upon amplification due to the spectral reshaping with higher gain in the spectral wings. This source paves the way for high flux soft X-ray pulses and IR-driven laser wakefield acceleration.

Figures (5)

Fig. 1
Fig. 1 A 14.1 fs, 2.4 mJ, 1.8 μm source is injected into a 4f setup, composed of two gratings G1 and G2, and two cylindrical mirrors M1 and M2. Two BBO crystals (22×15×6 mm each) are installed in the Fourier Plane, enabling amplification up to 30 mJ with an output pulse duration of 11.6 fs, using an 800 nm, 240 mJ, 2.5 ps pump source.
Fig. 2
Fig. 2 Experimental setup as described in the text. Amp: Amplifier, BS : Beam Splitter, Comp. : Compressor, DM : Dichroic Mirror, BD : Beam Dump.
Fig. 3
Fig. 3 (a) Measured seed pulse duration in the Fourier plane. (b) Pump beam profile at the Fourier plane. The red rectangles correspond to the crystals position in the FP, the black curve to the seed dimension in the FP. (c) Integrated pump beam profile (plain lines) and fit (dashed lines) in the horizontal (x, black) and vertical (y, red) dimension. The fit results give a FWHM of 35 mm in the x dimension and 14.8 mm in the y dimension.
Fig. 4
Fig. 4 (a) The amplified beam energy is plotted (black curve) as a function of the pump energy, as well as the conversion efficiency (red), defined as the ratio between the amplified output energy subsequent to the FOPA and the pump energy in the Fourier plane. (b–d) Three far-field profiles are displayed, (b) the input seed, (c) the output seed without amplification and (d) the amplified beam profile at 2.4 TW of peak power.
Fig. 5
Fig. 5 (a) Magnified seed spectra (factor of 10.7) with three amplified spectra, obtained with 80, 165 and 240 mJ of pump energy, respectively. (b) Spectral gain, defined as the ratio of the amplified spectral intensity over the seed spectral intensity. In both figures, a vertical, dashed, black line is displayed, showing the junction wavelength of the two crystals. (c) Experimental SHG-FROG trace of the pulses after the fiber and retrieved intensity (blue) and phase (red), leading to a FWHM duration of 14.1 fs. (d) Experimental SHG-FROG trace of the amplified pulses and retrieved intensity (blue) and phase (red), leading to a FWHM duration of 11.6 fs.
