Abstract

We demonstrate a 100 kHz optical parametric chirped-pulse amplifier delivering under 4-cycle (38 fs) pulses at ∼3.2 μm with an average power of 15.2 W with a pulse-topulse energy stability <0.7% rms and a single-shot CEP noise of 65 mrad RMS over 8h. This source is continuously monitored, by using a fast 100 kHz data acquisition device, and presents an extreme stability, in the short and long terms.
