Abstract

We generate self-carrier-to-envelope phase-stable, 630 μJ pulses, centered at 2.1 μm, with 42 fs (6 cycle) duration based on collinear optical parametric amplification in BiB3O6 at 3 kHz. These pulses are generated through a traveling wave amplifier scheme, and the bandwidth supports 28 fs (4 cycle) pulse duration. Carrier-to-envelope phase stability was measured to be 410 mrad over 10 min or 260 mrad over 35 s.
