Abstract

Phase-matched difference-frequency mixing in a thin GaSe crystal within the broad spectrum of 25-fs pulses from a Ti:sapphire oscillator multipass amplifier system permits the generation of few-cycle electric field transients, frequencies up to 30 THz, and amplitudes of more than 1 MV/cm. The field transients generated at a 1-kHz repetition rate are directly measured by electro-optic sampling by 12-fs probe pulses from the 75-MHz repetition-rate Ti:sapphire oscillator in combination with a novel electronic gating technique.
