Self-stabilized carrier-envelope offset phase is achieved by use of difference-frequency (DF) generation. The spectrum from a Ti:sapphire oscillator is broadened in a photonic crystal fiber, and a DF (900 nm) between the blue component (490 nm) and the infrared component (1080 nm) is generated. The beat signal between the fundamental and the DF signal is clearly observed. The wavelength of the DF signal can be tuned down to 780 nm, and hence the signal can be used for injection seeding of a Ti:sapphire oscillator.
