Paper Abstract

We describe our work on the amplification of short pulses in tunable solid state materials; specifically alexandrite and Ti:sapphire. Our goal is to amplify femtosecond range pulses to the joule level in a table top size laser. We will describe our results which show that such a laser is now feasible.
