Paper Abstract

Latest advances in femtosecond technology have strongly emphasized the control of ultra-short pulses in many applications where the preservation of the pulse duration is most important. Recently, the delivery of ultra-short pulses through optical fibers has become possible which opens up remarkable chances for simplifying optical setups or reaching inaccessible regions. In this study we report on fiber delivery of 2 nJ and sub 65 fs pulses from a Ti:Sapphire laser through 1.5 m LMA photonic crystal fiber. Application of such a fiber in an all-integrated THz imaging system to obtain contactless information on the doping concentration of semiconductor wafers is shown.
