Abstract

Two-octave-spanning precision dispersive mirror systems are demonstrated, providing a new enabling technology for pulse-energy and bandwidth scaling of sub-cycle optical waveform synthesizers. We propose and characterize new dispersion management schemes with advanced dielectric coating designs. Based on an analytic dual adiabatic matching structure, we implement a chirped dichroic mirror, to efficiently optimize the beam combining from different spectra, and a double-chirped mirror pair, to avoid unwanted nonlinearity during beam propagation, with custom-tailored dispersion and reflectivity over more than two octaves of bandwidth ranging from 0.49 to 2.3 μm, supporting 1.9-fs-short sub-optical-cycle pulses. The multilayer coating structures can also be applied to the design of chirped-fiber Bragg gratings and general optical filters. The proposed designs and schemes will benefit ultrabroadband applications requiring precise dispersion management, especially enabling the generation of intense sub-optical-cycle light transients.

Figures (7)

Fig. 1.
Fig. 1. Schematic of a >2-octave-wide three-channel parametric synthesizer [2123]. CEP, carrier-envelope phase; WL, white light; CDM, chirped dichroic mirror; OPA, optical parametric amplifier; DCM, double-chirped mirror; BOC, balanced optical cross correlator.
Fig. 2.
Fig. 2. (a)–(c) Structures and (d) reflectivity/GD of different chirped mirror structures: (a) a design of the SC structure monotonically increases the Bragg wavelength with quarter-wave layer pairs to provide negative dispersion; (b) the DC design tapering the impedance in the front section based on the SC layers features reduced GD ripples in the high-reflectivity range; (c) the proposed DAM structure further introduces another impedance-matching section in the back layers, resulting in high transmittance for longer wavelengths; low, low-index material (e.g., SiO2); high, high-index material (e.g., TiO2).
Fig. 3.
Fig. 3. (a) Structure and (b) the designed/measured reflectivity/GD of the CDM, as well as the corresponding GD design goals. The imperfect transmittance around 0.8 μm and the 5% reflection above 1.1 μm are intentionally created to supply a BOC for waveform synthesis; low, low-index material, SiO2; high, high-index material, TiO2; GD_R, designed/measured GD in reflection; GD_T, the transmitted designed/measured GD; FS, fused silica.
Fig. 4.
Fig. 4. (a) Schematic diagram of a dispersion-matched system based on the CDM. (b) The reflection (purple), transmission (red), and the combined spectra (green, blue, and orange dashed) in port 4 with different delays between port 1 and port 2 in (a), as well as the incoherently combined spectrum (black). Constructively/destructively interfered spectrum over the whole transition range (1.0–1.1 μm) can be obtained as the green/blue curve. (Inset) The optimized beam combining efficiency is >90%, even including the 8% total interface reflection losses of the matching plate in port 1.
Fig. 5.
Fig. 5. (a) and (b) Structure of the mirror pair of the optimized DAM DCM pair. (c) and (d) AR behavior for the longer wavelengths in the cascaded DAM sections indicated by the arrows in the mirror structure in (a) and (b), respectively; low, low-index material, SiO2; high, high-index material, TiO2.
Fig. 6.
Fig. 6. Reflectivity and GD of the ultrabroadband DCM pair: the calculation shown as the blue/red dashed lines and the solid lines show the measurement results. The dispersion of the DCM pair compensates a 1.44-mm optical path in fused silica and a 0.32-mm optical path in ZnSe for ranges of 0.49–1.05 μm and 1.05–2.3 μm, respectively.
Fig. 7.
Fig. 7. Evaluated pulse characteristics in (a) frequency domain and (b) time domain after the ultrabroadband DCM pair. The black curve in (a) is the measured combined OPA spectra, as well as the transform-limited electric-field waveform (TL) in (b). The red curves show the pulse after the mirror pair, as well as the residual phase shown as dotted line in (a). The duration of the pulses depicted in the inset as the black and red lines are 1.88 and 1.93 fs, respectively.
