Abstract

We present experimental results of the amplification of strongly amplitude-modulated chirped pulses resulting from the coherent addition of two delayed short pulses. The nonlinearities in the amplifier chain induce a temporal diffraction resulting in prepulses and postpulses, in addition to the two main pulses when compressed. Simultaneously, temporal-resolved and spectral-resolved output pulses show that the prepulses and postpulses are blue shifted and red shifted, respectively, explaining the causality of the system.
