Highly dispersive 100%-efficiency transmission gratings without reflection losses

Due to the rapid progress in high-power laser systems, there is an increasing demand for highly efficient damage resistant components. One decisive role in the power limitation of such systems, e.g. chirped pulse amplification setups (Strickland and Mourou, 1985), is played by the grating pair, which is used to recompress the amplified optical pulses. In… CONTINUE READING
