Abstract

In an effort to develop a robust and efficient front end for a chirped-pulse parametric amplification chain, we demonstrate a broadband difference-frequency converter driven by a monolithic femtosecond Yb-doped-fiber amplifier and emitting carrier-envelope-offset-free pulses with the energy of tens of nanojoules tunable in the wavelength range from 1200 nm to beyond 2 μ m . Next to providing these seed pulses, the system enables direct optical synchronization of Nd- and Yb-doped pump lasers for subsequent parametric amplification.
