Abstract

We report the generation of tunable femtosecond pulses in the near-IR using a two-stage, white-light seeded, collinear, femtosecond optical parametric amplifier (OPA). The OPA, based on BiB 3 O 6 crystal in both stages and pumped at 800 nm by a 1 kHz Ti:sapphire laser amplifier, provides sub- 30 fs signal pulses across the whole tuning range of 1.15 1.6 μm with minimum duration of 22 fs and maximum signal energy of 80 μJ .
