Abstract

Chirped-pulse amplification system based on chirp reversal in optical parametric chirped-pulse amplification is proposed and experimentally demonstrated. The operation of this system can be described as negative stretching—temporal chirp reversal—energy amplification—negative compression, in which the pulse is stretched and compressed with the same gratings. Stand-alone stretcher adopting lenses or concave mirrors with large aperture can be omitted. Simulations showed that this work mode can also increase the cut-off band-pass of the whole system and increase the output energy by 15–17%. In addition, the stability of a tiled-grating compressor can be improved with this work mode.
