30-fs 1.6 mJ pulses at a kHz repetition rate from a single stage DPSS Yb amplifier
Proceedings of the Conference on Lasers and Electro-Optics, CLEO-QELS 2010
200-fs 2.5-mJ pulses from a cw-diode-pumped Yb:CaF2 MOPA are spectrally broadened in Ar and recompressed to 30 fs at 980 nm using a prism pair. Multi-millijoule 12-fs pulses are feasible upon higher-order spectral phase correction.
