Paper Abstract

Using chirped-pulse amplification in Ti:sapphire, we have generated pulses of 21 fs duration at an energy of 0.5 mJ. We have also demonstrated further amplification of chirped pulses to 45 mJ with a bandwidth capable of supporting 25 fs pulses. The amplifier design minimizes material path-length, spectral distortion and clipping, and compensates for higher-order dispersion by using a combination of prisms and diffraction gratings.
