Abstract

By combining cross-polarized wave generation and femtosecond optical parametric amplification, a high-contrast front end featuring ultrahigh contrast, a broadband spectrum, an excellent beam profile, and good stability is built for a 10-PW-level Ti:sapphire laser in the Shanghai Superintense Ultrafast Laser Facility (SULF-10PW laser). The front end can deliver a cleaned pulse with a 110 μJ energy at 1 kHz, and the bandwidth of the cleaned pulse exceeds 60 nm (FWHM), which can support a 17 fs compressed pulse duration. The measured output energy fluctuation in one hour is <1.8% in rms value. The measurement-limited contrast is 10−10 at 3 ps before the main pulse. Utilizing the high-contrast front end, single-shot contrast at 10−10 level has been demonstrated in the SULF-10PW laser at a 24 fs pulse duration.
