Abstract

We describe two noncollinear optical parametric amplifier (NOPA) systems pumped by either the second (515 nm) or the third (343 nm) harmonic from an Yb:KGW source. Pulse durations as short as 6.8 fs are readily obtained by compression with chirped mirrors. The availability of both the second and third harmonics for NOPA pumping allows for gap-free tuning from 520 to 980 nm. The use of an intermediate NOPA to generate seed light at 780 nm extends the tuning range of the third harmonic pumped NOPA toward 450 nm.
