We report on the development of a 50-mJ-class ∼10-ps chirped-pulse amplifier at kHz repetition rates using cryogenic Yb∶YAG regenerative and multi-pass amplifiers. The system is well suited as pump laser for kHz high-average-power ultra-broadband OPCPAs.
III The use of diode lasers instead ofHashlamps as optical pump sources for solid state lasers offers significant advantages such as higher efficiency and longer lifetime. We have demonstrated three novel lasers based on this technology. The first is a zigzag slab laser pumped by hybrid planar microchannel-cooled diode arrays that allow high-repetition-rate(More)

Nonlinear optics plays a key role in many applications not only as a means of frequency synthesis and control, but also as a source of twin photons and other nonclas-sical states of light. Advances in nonlinear materials, including engineered nonlinear interactions through the use of quasi-phase matching, have increased the flexibility and performance of(More)
