Abstract

A three-stage, 1-kHz amplifier system delivering pulses shorter than 10 fs with a peak power in excess of 0.3 TW is reported. Passive and active spectral intensity and phase control allows the preservation of a bandwidth of 120 nm (FWHM) to as high as multimillijoule energy levels and temporal compression of the broadband pulses close to their Fourier limit. The system is scalable to peak powers well beyond 1 TW and holds promise for substantially advancing the state of the art of coherent laboratory soft-x-ray sources.
