Abstract

We describe a novel scheme consisting of two deformable bimorph mirrors that can free ultrashort laser pulses from simultaneously present strong wave-front distortions and intensity-profile modulations. This scheme is applied to the Max-Planck-Institut für Quantenoptik 10-TW Advanced Titanium-Sapphire Laser (ATLAS) facility. We demonstrate that with this scheme the focusability of the ATLAS pulses can be improved from 1018 to 2×1019 W/cm2 without any penalty in recompression fidelity.
