Abstract

We demonstrate amplification and compression of 110-nm broad spectra in a spatially dispersed amplifier for what is believed to be the first time and generate 14.8-fs pulses with 450 µJ of energy at a repetition rate of 1 kHz. The amplifier concept is scalable in energy and allows for spectral shaping, which was demonstrated and compared with numerical simulations and showed excellent agreement.
