Abstract

We report efficient noncollinear optical parametric amplification (NOPA) of ultrabroadband near-IR pulses tunable in the 1.1 1.5 μm range at a repetition rate of 250 kHz . Improved generation of smooth near-IR continua (extending over 1.0 1.6 μm ) at 250 kHz was achieved by weakly focusing 20 % of the 1 W driving laser beam into a sapphire plate with longer focal length lenses than previously reported. Using bulk potassium-titanyl phosphate ( KTiOPO 4 ) pumped at 800 nm , powers as high as 11 mW (14% pump conversion efficiency) and signal pulse durations as short as 23 fs were obtained after a single white-light seeded NOPA stage.
