Abstract

An uniquely high conversion efficiency of fundamental radiation from a Ti:sapphire laser to a supercontinuum is achieved through filamentary propagation in sulfur hexafluoride ( S F 6 ) to generate a uniform over-octave spectrum. Two different parts of the supercontinuum, firstly around the fundamental wavelength of 800 nm and secondly within the newly generated frequency range around 550 nm , are shown to be compressible down to minimal pulse duration of about 10 fs demonstrating a potential of the method for single-cycle pulses generation.
