Paper Abstract

A hybrid laser composed of Ti:chrysoberyl and Ti:sapphire is proposed in this letter. The laser has the similar structure to ordinary Ti:sapphire based lasers except that the host material of the regenerative amplifier is replaced by Ti:chrysoberyl. The Ti:chrysoberyl is employed in this system with the polarization parallel to a axis since then its photoluminescence spectrum has two peaks. A simplified theoretical model for numerical simulation is presented here. The ability of the hybrid amplifier chain to compensate the gain narrowing is obviously demonstrated and the laser is potential to generate ~10fs, >2petawatt pulses according to the numerical simulation.
