Kessel, Alexander; Trushin, Sergei A.; Karpowicz, Nicholas; Skrobol, Christoph; Klingebiel, Sandro; Wandt, Christoph and Karsch, Stefan (2016): Generation of multi-octave spanning high-energy pulses by cascaded nonlinear processes in BBO. In: Optics Express, Vol. 24, No. 5: pp. 5628-5637

Full text not available from 'Open Access LMU'.


We present the generation of optical pulses with a spectral range of 500-2400 nm and energies up to 10 mu J at 1 kHz repetition rate by cascaded second-order nonlinear interaction of few-cycle pulses in beta-barium borate (BBO). Numerical simulations with a 1D+time splitstep model are performed to explain the experimental findings. The large bandwidth and smooth spectral amplitude of the resulting pulses make them an ideal seed for ultra-broadband optical parametric chirped pulse amplification and an attractive source for spectroscopic applications.
