Paper Abstract

In this paper we demonstrate a successful recompression of 4.5 mJ, 30 fs femtosecond pulses from a Ti:Sapphire oscillator, amplified in a ring multi-pass optical parametric chirped pulse amplifier, using &bgr;-barium borate crystal pumped by a commercial frequency doubled Nd:YAG laser. Pulses with duration close to the Fourier transform limit were obtained. Numerical results of two stage high efficiency parametric amplifier are also presented.
