High efficiency, multi-mJ, sub 10 fs, optical parametric amplifier at 3 kHz

Open Access Open Access

Abstract

We present a short-pulse pumped optical parametric amplifier (OPA) with a broadband spectrum from 670 nm to 1000 nm, supporting 5.7 fs pulses with > 32 % pump-to-signal conversion efficiency resulting in pulse energies of 2.5 mJ.
