Abstract

Using a 150-µm-thick CsLiB6O10 crystal, we produced 100-fs, >200-nJ light pulses tunable between 175 and 180 nm by sum-frequency generation at a 1-kHz repetition rate with an all-solid-state laser system mixing the fourth harmonic of a femtosecond Ti:sapphire regenerative amplifier and the idler pulse from a traveling-wave optical parametric amplifier.
