Abstract

The generation of broadband tunable optical pulses is demonstrated in the range of 1050 1300 nm with noncollinear optical parametric amplification of white-light seed pulses in potassium titanyl phosphate ( KTiOPO 4 ). Pulse bandwidths of 50 nm ( 12 THz ) are demonstrated with pulse energies up to 20 μJ when pumped with 500 μJ , 150 fs pulses centered at 802 nm . The required signal–pump angles range from 1.9 ° to 5.0 ° . The pulse duration was 60 fs after compression.
