Abstract

We report on the generation of 9.0 fs, 550 μJ, carrier-envelope phase (CEP)-stabilized optical pulses around 1.6 μm at 1 kHz. Few-cycle IR pulses are obtained from a BiB 3 O 6 optical parametric chirped-pulse amplifier. The amplification of nearly octave-spanning ultrabroad pulses without spectral broadening results in good stability in output energy (0.85% rms) and CEP (160 mrad rms). We observed high harmonics in the water window from a neon cell that corresponds to a laser intensity of 4.1 × 10 14 W / cm 2 .
