Abstract

We demonstrate, for the first time to our knowledge, an optical parametric amplifier directly pumped by a femtosecond oscillator. Wavelength-tunable pulses in the ranges 0.65 0.85 μ m (signal) and 1.4 2.5 μ m (idler) are generated at a repetition frequency of 1 MHz. For pumping the β-barium borate crystal we use a microjoule Yb : K Y ( W O 4 ) 2 femtosecond oscillator with cavity dumping. Pulses with 30 nJ of energy and a duration of 16 fs are achieved from a supercontinuum seed generated in a sapphire plate.
