Abstract

Amplification of femtosecond pulses at 1.56 μ m based on noncollinear parametric chirped pulse amplification in a potassium titanyl arsenate (KTA) crystal with pumping at 1.05 μ m is reported. The 100 fs pulses of an erbium fiber laser are parametrically amplified while synchronously pumped by an amplified mode-locked Nd:YLF laser. This amplifier has a saturated gain of 65 dB with 30% conversion efficiency and has produced 160 fs pulses with peak powers of up to 0.75 GW . The system produced 380 mW before compression and can be readily scaled to the multiwatt range with bandwidths to support sub- 100 f s pulses.
