Paper Abstract

We show that a pair of grisms (transmission gratings written onto prisms) exhibits second- and third-order dispersion opposite to that of an optical fiber. Using a fiber stretcher and a grism- pair compressor, we demonstrate chirped-pulse amplification and transform-limited compression of 135-fs pulses. This scheme can be used to produce 50-fs, microjoule pulses in a compact and simple system.
