Abstract

We report the generation and measurement of 804-nm pulses with durations as short as 20 fs and with peak powers as high as 500 kW from a regeneratively initiated, self-mode-locked Ti:sapphire laser. Pulse duration is shown to decrease, and spectral content to increase, as intracavity power is increased. Control of intracavity focusing and a high-modulation-depth, acousto-optic modulator allow the intracavity power to be maximized. Cavity cubic phase error is minimized by correct design and placement of a group-velocity-dispersion-compensating prism pair.
