Paper Abstract

In this work we perform a simulation study for yttrium calcium oxyborate (YCOB) as the nonlinear medium for optical parametric amplification. These results will be used to design a new large bandwidth, 10 Hz, OPCPA stage at the Laboratory for Intense Lasers at IST, pumped by an ytterbium-based amplifier and seeded by a white light continuum. Different regimes are tested to assess the scalability of the material
