Abstract

We present a simple and efficient concept for the generation of ultrashort infrared pulses with passively stabilized carrier-envelope phase at 100 kHz repetition rate. The central wavelength is tunable between 1.6 and 2.0 µm with pulse durations between 8.2 and 12.8 fs, corresponding to a sub-two-cycle duration over the whole tuning range. Pulse energies of up to 145 nJ are achieved. As a first application we measure the high nonlinearity of multiphoton photoemission from a nanoscale metal tip.
