The optical parametric–chirped pulse amplification (OPCPA) based on large-aperture nonlinear optical crystals is promising for implementation of an ultrahigh peak-power laser system of 10 PW and beyond. We demonstrated the highest energy broadband OPCPA at 800 nm, to the best of our knowledge, by using an 80 mm in diameter LiB3O5(LBO) amplifier, with an output energy of 28.68 J, a bandwidth of 80 nm (FWHM), and conversion efficiency of 25.38%. After compression, a peak power of 0.61 PW with 33.8 fs pulse duration is produced.
