Paper Abstract

The pedestal (pre-pulse and post-pulse) associated with a chirped-pulse-amplification (CPA) laser is modeled. In this model, the power gain can be treated as a function of instantaneous frequency due to the large chirp of this type of laser. It is found that self-phase-modulation (SPM) can play an important role determining the final shape of the compressed pulse, even at relatively low values of the cumulative B-integral, B less than approximately 2.
