Chirped-pulse amplification of 85-fs pulses at 250 kHz with third-order dispersion compensation by use of holographic transmission gratings.

Abstract

We demonstrate pulse stretching and compression in a high-repetition-rate chirped-pulse Ti:sapphire regenerative amplifier, using high-efficiency holographic transmission gratings. A quantitative dispersion measurement technique is developed to characterize dispersion of the system to the third order. After recompression with third-order dispersion compensation, 3.1-microJ 85-fs, nearly transform-limited pulses are obtained.
