Abstract

We present a rigorous study on the impact of atmospheric molecular absorption on the linear propagation of ultrashort pulses in the mid-infrared wavelength region. An ultrafast thulium-based fiber laser was employed to experimentally investigate ultrashort-pulse propagation through the atmosphere in a spectral region containing several strong molecular absorption lines. The atmospheric absorption profile causes a significant degradation of the pulse quality in the time domain as well as a distortion of the transverse beam profile in the spatial domain. Numerical simulations carried out in the small signal limit accurately reproduce the experimental observations in the time domain and reveal that the relative loss in peak power after propagation can be more than twice as high as the relative amount of absorbed average power. Although their nature is purely linear (i.e. the intensities considered are sufficiently low) the discussed effects represent significant challenges to performance-scaling of mid-infrared ultrafast lasers operating in spectral regions with molecular absorption bands. Guidelines for an efficient mitigation of the pulse quality degradation and the beam profile distortion are discussed.

Figures (9)

Fig. 1
Fig. 1 Typical atmospheric transmission spectrum for a propagation distance of 10 cm at sea level [9]. Vibrational modes and their superposition are exemplarily marked for the most important water-vapor absorption bands.
Fig. 2
Fig. 2 Spectrum of the externally compressed pulses, before (red) and after (blue) propagation through a climate chamber filled with air. The simulated oscillator spectrum (without absorption) is also shown (orange).
Fig. 3
Fig. 3 Measured and simulated autocorrelation (AC) traces after the propagation of 330 fs pulses through 12 m of an air-nitrogen atmosphere with different relative humidity levels. The simulated AC trace at 0% relative humidity is plotted as a reference.
Fig. 4
Fig. 4 Simulated pulse profile after 12 m propagation in the climate chamber with 60% relative humidity. Inset: Excerpt of a spectral region with strong absorption lines as retrieved from [9, 17] and the measured spectra. The corresponding calculated refractive index profile is also shown.
Fig. 5
Fig. 5 Simulated peak power and average power loss after 12 m of propagation at varying humidity levels.
Fig. 6
Fig. 6 Transmitted relative peak power (color) depending on the absorbed relative average power after propagation and on the overlap (center wavelength) of a Gaussian spectrum (approximately 34 nm 3 dB-bandwidth) with the water-vapor absorption lines of the vibrational band around 1.9 µm. The dashed white contour lines exemplary depict data points corresponding to a fixed propagation distance.
Fig. 7
Fig. 7 Transmitted relative peak power as a function of the transmitted relative average power after propagation of an ultrashort pulse with various overlaps (center wavelengths) of the pulse spectrum with the absorbing region. The data corresponding to 10 m of propagation distance are also represented by one of the dashed lines in Fig. 6. The respective slopes have been retrieved by a linear fit (solid lines).
Fig. 8
Fig. 8 Proportionality between the transmitted relative peak power and transmitted relative average power depending on the propagation distance for three bands of water-vapor absorption lines around 1.9 µm (ν1 + ν2, ν2 + ν3), 2.7 µm (ν1, ν3) and 6 µm (ν2) in the mid-IR. The solid lines represent an exponential fit.
Fig. 9
Fig. 9 Images of the transverse beam profile after propagation through 1 m of laboratory atmosphere. Starting from the left, the first four columns represent a wavelength sweep of the cw-laser. Each operation wavelength is marked in the plot of the retrieved spectral absorption coefficient. The rightmost column shows the beam profiles for a broad band source (ultrashort-pulse oscillator spectrum) after propagation at similar power levels. In the first three rows the beam profiles after propagation at different output power levels (prior to propagation) can be seen. The lowest row represents the beam profiles at the highest average power (24 W) when a fan blows air over the propagation path.
