Paper Abstract

Two side-pumping schemes suitable for the development of an ultraviolet femtosecond amplifier system using a Ce3+:LiCaAlF6 crystal are reported. Firstly, a Bethune-type prismatic cell configuration that uniformly illuminates the four sides of a micro-pulling down method-grown crystal is used to amplify 290 nm, femtosecond pulses with no significant increase in pulse duration and B-integral. The second pumping scheme uses a two-side-pumped large crystal. These two side-pumping schemes can pave new possibilities for achieving high-energy ultraviolet femtosecond pulses.
