Paper Abstract

Today, ultrafast laser technology demonstrates unsurpassed performances in terms of pulse duration, pulse repetition rates, average power and wavelength range. This enables new applications in many areas such as optical communication, photonics switching, RGB-displays, material processing and many more. These markets will strongly drive further research efforts towards even more reliable and more compact sources. In addition, we are at the edge of sub-femtosecond science using high-harmonic generation of optical pulses with only few optical cycles.
