  1. 1. Dispersion management and characterization of ultrashort laser pulses for the optimization of parametric processes

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Atomfysik; Lunds universitet/Fysiska institutionen

    Author : Axel Elfving; [2019]
    Keywords : frequency resolved optical gating; optical parametric amplification; difference frequency generation; nonlinear optics; laser pulse compression; lasers; optics; Technology and Engineering; Physics and Astronomy;

    Abstract : This thesis set out to continue the development of a short-wave infrared (SWIR) optical parametric amplifier (OPA). The system is based on a Yb-ber chirped pulse amplification (CPA) laser delivering 400 fs long pulses, centered around 1030 nm, at 200 kHz repetition rate and 40 W average power. READ MORE

  2. 2. Noncollinear optical parametric amplification of a supercontinuum

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Atomfysik; Lunds universitet/Fysiska institutionen

    Author : Henrik Åkesson; [2019]
    Keywords : optical parametric amplification; supercontinuum generation; nonlinear optics; laser pulse compression; lasers; optics; Physics and Astronomy; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : During this thesis, work has been done towards realizing a short-wave infrared (SWIR) laser source based on optical parametric amplification. It is planned that this setup should be able to produce few-cycle laser pulses at 2μm with a stable carrier-envelope phase (CEP). READ MORE

  3. 3. Compression and Shaping of Femtosecond Laser Pulses for Coherent Two-Dimensional Nanoscopy

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Fysiska institutionen; Lunds universitet/Synkrotronljusfysik

    Author : Lukas Wittenbecher; [2016]
    Keywords : Femtosecond pulse shaping; Ultrafast optics; Liquid crystal spatial light modulator; Coherent two-dimensional nanoscopy; Dispersion compensation; Physics and Astronomy;

    Abstract : Femtosecond pulse shaping is a versatile tool that enables the generation of ultrashort laser pulses with nearly arbitrary temporal shapes. Among others, the technique is of use in ultrafast spectroscopy experiments where it can be employed for dispersion control and the generation of well-defined laser pulse sequences. READ MORE

  4. 4. Measuring the Optical Properties of Human Muscle Tissue using Time-of-Flight Spectroscopy in the Near Infrared

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Fysiska institutionen; Lunds universitet/Atomfysik

    Author : Staffan Strömblad; [2015]
    Keywords : photon; Time-of-Flight; muscle tissue; optical; spectra; Infrared; Physics and Astronomy; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : Optical spectroscopy is commonly used in technology and science today. The presence and concentration of a substance can be determined by its spectral signature, the typical wavelengths that are absorbed (or emitted) by the atoms or molecules. READ MORE

  5. 5. Pulse Compression of Short Wavelength Infrared Optical Parametric Amplified Pulses Using a Hollow Core Capillary

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Fysiska institutionen; Lunds universitet/Atomfysik

    Author : Neven Ibrakovic; [2015]
    Keywords : HHG; pulse compression; HCF; KDP; Dispersion; few cycle; TOPAS; OPA; Nonlinear; anomalous dispersion; waveguide; Physics and Astronomy;

    Abstract : In this thesis, a method for producing few-cycle short wavelength infrared pulses is presented. The pulses are created by down converting the 800 nm output of a Ti:Sapphire laser in an optical parametric amplifier to 1300 nm, and spectrally broadened in a hollow core fiber in order to obtain a short transform limited pulse duration.
