Abstract

The generation of ultrashort pulses consists of four main ingredients: generation of white-light continuum (WLC) with sufficient spectral bandwidth; measurement of the spectral phase of the resulting WLC; design of a compressor suitable for phase correction over the whole continuum bandwidth; and determination of the compressed pulse duration and its phase. A set-up is described in which the required ultrabroad bandwidth of WLC is produced on injection of approx. 13-fs, 35-nJ pulses from a Millennia-pumped cavity-dumped Ti:sapphire laser into a single-mode fused silica fiber.
