Paper Abstract

A three stage optical parametric amplifier is pumped by a 250-kHz (mu) J level Ti:sapphire regenerative amplifier system. Broad-bandwidth pulses are produced by tuning each stage of the OPA system to amplify adjacent frequency components of a white-light continuum source. These broad-band pulses may be compressed with a standard prism compressor to pulse- widths of less than 30 fs.
