Abstract

A novel pulse stretching-compression system suitable for kHz-rate chirped-pulse amplification of ≈10 fs pulses in Ti:sapphire systems is demonstrated. The material dispersion of the system components used for pulse selection and isolation broadens the wide-band seed pulses by a factor of ≈300, allowing amplification up to the submillijoule energy range. The compressor consists of a pair of prisms and newly-developed chirped multilayer dielectric mirrors for compensating high order dispersion. Using this simple scheme a recompression of unamplified pulses down to 15 fs with a throughput as high as 80% is demonstrated.
