Abstract

The most common ways of generating energetic femtosecond UV pulses shorter than 100 fs are nonlinear frequency conversion of high power VIS-IR pulses, that is second harmonic and sum frequency generation, or direct amplification of short seed pulses to high intensity level. The first approach suffers from dispersion and related problems in nonlinear crystals, while the second approach is restricted by either the bandwidth of the readily available high gain excimer amplifiers or the small gain of the relatively broadband newly developed solid state materials. This paper presents the results of the experiment in efficient amplification of broadband, stretched femtosecond pulses at 400 nm using noncollinear optical parametric amplification (NOPA UV).
