Abstract

The spectral structure of the gain-profile of XeCl was found to strongly influence the spectral and temporal characteristics of amplified ultrashort light pulses. A simple model was used to numerically study both effects as a function of amplifier length and input pulse energy. The results are in good agreement with experiments. With these data the performance of a XeCl amplifier was optimized for shortest pulse duration with minimum distortion.
