Abstract

High-energy femtosecond laser pulses in the mid-infrared (MIR) wavelength range are essential for a wide range of applications from strong-field physics to selectively pump and probe low energy excitations in condensed matter and molecular vibrations. Here we report a four stage optical parametric chirped pulse amplifier (OPCPA) which generates ultrashort pulses at a central wavelength of 3000 nm with 430 $\mu$J energy per pulse at a bandwidth of 490 nm. Broadband emission of a Ti:sapphire oscillator seeds both the four stage OPCPA 800 nm and the pump line at 1030 nm. The first stage amplifies the 800 nm pulses in BBO using a non-collinear configuration. The second stage converts the wavelength to 1560 nm using difference frequency generation in BBO in a collinear geometry. The third stage amplifies this frequency non-collinearly in KTA. Finally, the fourth stage generates the 3000 nm radiation in a collinear configuration in LiIO$_3$ due to the broad amplification bandwidth this crystal provides. We compress these pulses to 65 fs by transmission through sapphire. Quantitative calculations of the individual non-linear processes in all stages verify that our OPCPA architecture operates close to optimum efficiency. Low absorption losses suggest that this particular design is very suitable for operation at high average power and multi kHz repetition rates.

Fig. 1.
Fig. 1. OPCPA schematic. A broadband Ti:Sa oscillator is used as a seed source both for the OPCPA itself and for the pump channel. The 6 fs pulses at the wavelength of 800 nm are stretched and used as seed for the four stage OPCPA, consisting of two BBO crystals followed by KTA and LiIO$_3$ stages. The pump channel is seeded with 1030 nm pulses and consists of fiber pre-amplifier with electro-optical modulator (FA & EOM), stretcher, Yb$^{3+}$ bulk pre-amplifier, Innoslab power amplifier, and compressor. Part of the pump radiation is converted to SH in LBO crystal for pumping of BBO stages. Half-wave plates ($\lambda$/2) are used to control the polarization and together with polarizers (P) to adjust pump intensities. Photodiodes (PDs) together with the computer controlled translation stage (TS) are used to set a proper delay between the pump and the amplified pulses. DM, BD, and SP stand for dichroic mirrors, beam dumps, and sapphire plate, respectively. The beam diameters are adjusted with the help of telescopes, which are not shown. Inset: spectrum of the Ti:Sa oscillator.
Fig. 2.
Fig. 2. Calculated (red) and measured (open circles) output energy of the first OPCPA stage over five orders of magnitude (a). Experimental (black) and calculated (red) SH spectra are shown in panel (b). The calculated spectrum of the signal is shown in panel (c).
Fig. 3.
Fig. 3. Second OPCPA stage: calculated (red) and measured (black) spectra of the SH of the signal pulse (a), of the signal (b) and of the idler (c), respectively.
Fig. 4.
Fig. 4. Third OPCPA stage: calculated (red) and measured (black) spectra of the SH of the signal pulse (a) and of the signal pulse (b). The calculated idler spectrum (c) is wide enough to support sub 40 fs pulses.

Fig. 5. Calculated (red) and measured (solid black, dashed blue) spectra after the fourth stage. Spectrum of the idler pulse up converted in a thin KTA crystal using pump at 1030 nm (a). Spectra of the idler (b) and signal (c).

Fig. 6. Second order AC trace of uncompressed signal pulses at the wavelength of 1560 nm (a) and of the compressed MIR pulses at the wavelength of 3000 nm (b), red solid curve. Black dashed line in (b) corresponds to a Gaussian function with 90 fs FWHM. Panel (c) shows the intensity distribution in the 3000 nm beam (recorded using a DataRay camera WinCamD-IR-BB).
