Up to date, the majority of the existing petawatt class lasers are based on Ti: Sapphire (Ti:Sa) because of the wide emission spectrum, high thermal conductivity and loose requirement of the pump laser parameters [1]. However, petawatt systems with pulse duration considerably less than 25 fs are not yet available due to the gain narrowing effect which… CONTINUE READING
