Paper Abstract

In this contribution we report a high repetition rate optical parametric amplifier (OPA) pumped by a chirped pulse fiber amplifier system. Fiber CPA systems have demonstrated power scaling and open the route to OPAs at repetition rates in the 100 kHz-10MHz range. The OPA stage is seeded by a continuum generated in a Sapphire plate and more than 50 nm bandwidth is efficiently amplified, resulting in 3 &mgr;J, 29 fs pulses.
