Chirped-pulse amplification (CPA) has become a common technique for damage-free amplification of the light pulses to TW-level or even higher. The standard CPA systems often use diffraction grating based stretchercompressor systems or bulk material as the stretcher and pairing double-prism as pulse compressors. Prism compressors are preferred over grating… CONTINUE READING
