Ultrabroadband chirped mirrors (UCBMs) were developed for tuning ultrabroadband femtosecond Ti:sapphire laser without changing mirrors over the whole of their operation range. The calculated transmittance and group delay of one broadband chirped mirror versus wavelength were shown and a high reflectivity range from 660 to 1100 nm was obtained. The dispersive properties of UCBMs after the deposition process were verified using the white-light interferometry. The considerable extension of the high reflectivity range of the CMs with respect to previous designs was achieved at the expense of a slightly higher fluctuation in the negative GDD.
