Abstract

A new technology based on Ti:sapphire laser systems allows the generation of approximately 20-fs pulses with gigawatt1,2 or terawatt3,4 peak power has been presented. Recently a powerful pulse compression technique based on spectral broadening in a hollow fiber filled with noble gases has demonstrated capability of handling high energy pulses. The hollow fiber technique with a broadband dispersive system resulted in the compression of high-energy 20-fs input pulses down to 4.5-fs and output energy up to 70 μJ has also been presented. These pulses are the shortest generated to date and contain less than two oscillations of the optical radiation.
