A cylindrical Öffner stretcher for reduced chromatic aberrations and improved temporal contrast

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access


An Öffner stretcher using cylindrical mirrors is evaluated for ultra-broadband, high-contrast lasers. Adding a grating reduces chromatic aberration, and replacing the spherical mirrors eliminates the intermediate foci, increasing energy throughput and improving temporal contrast.
