Paper Abstract

A new technique for pulse shortening by a combination of pulse shaping and saturated amplification was developed. Two-step stimulated Brillouin scattering was used for the pulse shaping. The generated Stokes pulse was amplified by a discharge KrF laser amplifier under strongly saturated condition. The amplified Stokes pulse with 44 ps rise-time and 54 ps pulse width (FWHM) was obtained.
