Abstract

We obtained nearly transform-limited light pulses of 34 fs near 1.2 µm by pumping an optical parametric oscillator with a 2-mm-long KTP crystal by 26-fs pulses from a Ti:sapphire laser. The average power of the pulses that were obtained was greater than 50 mW, at an 80-MHz repetition rate. Attempts to downscale the pulse duration by decreasing the pump-pulse duration revealed remarkable limitations of the attainable pulse length for sub-30-fs pump pulses, in accordance with a recent theoretical study [J. Opt. Soc. Am. B 17, 741 (2000)].
