  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

    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. Evaluation of white-light generation as possible seed for a mid-infrared optical parametric chirped pulse amplifier

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

    Author : Chuang Lu; [2017]
    Keywords : nonlinear linear optics; ultrafast optics; Mid-infrared generation; near-infrared; Optical parametric amplification; Optical Parametric Chirped-pulse Amplification; supercontinuum generation; white-light generation; laser induced filamentation; Dispersion-scan; nonlinear propagation; Physics and Astronomy;

    Abstract : White-light spectra of different crystals, based on 1030-nm intense pump pulses have been investigated in order to derive a near-infrared seed for mid-infrared generation. Among ten crystals, YAG (yttrium aluminium garnet), KGW (potassium gadolinium tungstate) and YVO4 (yttrium orthovanadate) exhibit the most suitable properties for supercontinuum generation with high efficiency for spectral broadening as well as high tolerance to optical damage.
