Abstract

The use of suitable noncollinear phase-matching configurations in type-I (eoo) parametric interaction greatly improves the group-velocity matching among pump, signal, and idler pulses. A numerical model, well supported by the experiments, shows that the compensation of group-velocity mismatch can be achieved over the entire tuning range for pulses as short as few tens of femtoseconds. A general feature of the noncollinear interaction, the front tilt of the generated pulses, is experimentally investigated for a LiIO3 traveling-wave generator. A novel β-barium borate traveling-wave parametric converter pumped with 130-fs blue pulses from a frequency-doubled amplified Ti:sapphire system provides broad tunability in the visible with pulse durations as low as 90 fs and with a single-pass conversion efficiency as large as 40%.
