  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

    Abstract : This study saw the development of an experimental setup capable of generating and measuring optical-field-induced currents in a variety of nanodevices fabricated specifically for this project. Each device design features two metallic contacts, closely separated by about 5 micrometers, deposited onto a semiconductor or insulator substrate. READ MORE

  5. 5. Design and Commissioning of an Ionization Intensity Monitor

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

    Author : Hanna Berg; [2019]
    Keywords : Physics and Astronomy;

    Abstract : The dynamics of molecules and electrons takes place on timescales of femtoseconds and attoseconds, respectively. This requires ultrashort and intense extreme ultraviolet (XUV) pulses to be able to study them. READ MORE
