A 18 mJ femtosecond Ti: sapphire amplifier at 100 Hz repetition rate

Publication Date Jan 1, 2016

Abstract

High energy and high repetition rate femtosecond Ti:sapphire lasers are widely used in isolated attosecond pulses and high-order harmonic generation. Enhancing the driving laser energy is a convenient and effective way to improve attosecond pulse energy. A 1 kHz or higher repetition rate millijoule level femtosecond Ti:sapphire amplifier is generally used to generate isolated attosecond. However, due to the limitation of its green pump laser energy, the energy of femtosecond Ti:sapphire laser is limited to several millijoules. Appropriately reducing the requirements for repetition rate, realizing high energy driving laser will significantly improve attosecond pulse energy and extend its application scope. Meanwhile, a 532 nm pump laser from frequency doubled 1064 nm Nd:YAG flash lamp pumped laser at 100 Hz repetition rate can achieve high pump energy with lower cost. Accordingly, we develope a 100 Hz repetition rate high energy amplifier based on Ti:sapphire crystal. The femtosecond amplifier system consists of oscillator, stretcher, ring cavity regenerative amplifier, four-pass amplifier and grating compressor. The ring cavity regenerative amplifier is the first amplifier as pre-amplifier, and the four-pass amplifier is the booster amplified-stage. 80 MHz seed pulse from the oscillator has a full width at half maximum bandwidth of 61 nm with a 20 fs duration. Then the seed pulses are stretched to 200 ps with a Martinez grating stretcher, rotated to vertical polarization and injected into the regenerative amplifier. The ampl...
