Thin-Disk-Pumped OPCPA System beyond Terawatt Level

Researchers from MBI Berlin and ETH Zürich use a Yb: KGW-driven frontend built by Light Conversion to demonstrate the first thin-disk-pumped OPCPA system beyond the terawatt level. The terawatt pulses generate intense extreme ultraviolet (EUV) pulses by high-order harmonic generation. Part of the experimental setup for this research included a Yb:KGW-driven frontend. This provides the seed pulses for … Continue reading

A New Approach to Few-Cycle Pulse Compression

Attosecond science is enabled by nonlinear compression of intense laser pulses. Researchers from the University of Central Florida and Binghamton University suggest a new approach to few-cycle pulse compression. Using a PHAROS laser from Light Conversion, they demonstrated a record > 45× single-stage pulse compression and supercontinuum generation in XUV. The paper describing the research is entitled “Multioctave supercontinuum generation and … Continue reading
