Paper Abstract

Regenerative pulse shaping is used to overcome gain narrowing during ultrashort pulse amplification. We have demonstrated multiple spectral filters for broadening the amplified spectrum. We have produced amplified pulses with an energy of approximately 5 mJ and bandwidths of approximately 100 nm, or nearly 3 times wider than the gain narrowing limit of Ti:sapphire.
