Paper Abstract

The parametric down conversion of femtosecond pulses at high intensity is discussed. An injection-locked parametric oscillator based on a nonlinear LBO crystal pumped by XeCl- and dye-laser systems is developed. The nonlinear refractive index n2 approximately equals 1.7 10-16 cm2/W and the optical surface breakdown threshold Ibr approximately equals 3.8 1013 W/cm2 of LBO crystal for approximately 400 fsec pulses were measured. The spatial dispersion of effective nonlinearity deff2/n3 for parametric amplification in LBO crystal is calculated. The design and performance of femtosecond dye- laser system and XeCl-excimer-laser system capable of producing a focused intensity in excess of 1016 W/cm2 are described.
